Greetings, I am attempting to use the dynamixel_controller stack to control an ax-12 servo. When I attempt to launch the node I get an error stating "Could not open port /dev/ttyUSB0 [Errno 2] no such file or directory: '/dev/ttyUSB0.' Now I've checked to make sure my usb2dynamixel is connected to ttyUSB0 with minicom and it is. After looking at my log I think it may have something to do with use_sim_time? My log file can be seen below, any help would be greatly appreciated.

It has nothing to do with use_sim_time parameter, it being set or not will not influence how dynamixel driver will operate.

It looks like it can't find the ttyUSB0 file, can you add an output of:

ls -la /dev/ttyUSB*

to your question, just to make sure that it is indeed there?

Could you also add configuration and launch file that you used to start everything up?

Can you post the contents of the launch file that you are using?
