Revision history [back]

The program is probably executed with a different working directory than you expect, so the image file cannot be found. AFAIK rosrun keeps the current working directory, while roslaunch changes to some entirely different place. Neither changes the working directory to the package directory.

Current best practice is to use the $(find foo) directive in the launch file to substitute the absolute path to the package foo in a configuration value.
