roslaunch ocl deployer node does not recognize '-s foo.ops --'

When I run:

rosrun ocl deployer-gnulinux -s foo.ops

This works just fine, however when I try this from within a *.launch file

(documented here:

<launch> <node name="orocos" pkg="ocl" type="deployer-gnulinux" launch-prefix="gnome-terminal -e" args=" -s $(find orocos)/foo.ops --"> </node>

I get:

Failed to parse arguments: Unknown option -s

It looks like the arguments are being treated differently when called this way.

Hey Brian,

you are definitively using the correct syntax. All I can think of is something goes wrong with combining it with the gnome-terminal command. I'm using very similar syntax, but with the x-terminal instead, so maybe you could try that one and see if that gives you any better results:

< node name="orocos" pkg="ocl" type="deployer-gnulinux" launch-prefix="xterm -e" args="-s $(find orocos)/system.ops -- ">
