Hey all, I searched through the forums and I didn't see anyone with this particular issue so I figure'd I'd post here. Pardon me if someone already answered this question and I missed it. Anyways, so I have a roslaunch file set up to start nodes on multiple machines, one being my computer, and the other being an O-Droid which will control the robot. The purpose is to send remote commands from my computer to the robot.

My roslaunch file is below:

   <?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--xml file for roslaunch
    roslaunch will navigate through xml file launching all nodes automatically

    <!--Machine declarations-->
    <machine name="Command" address="localhost" env-loader="/home/viki/"/>
    <machine name="O-Droid" address="odroid" env-loader="/home/odroid/" user="odroid"/>

    <!--Hardware Interface nodes-->
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="i2c_node"      pkg="hardware_interface" type="i2c_node"/>
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="adafruit_node" pkg="hardware_interface" type="adafruit_node"/>
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="adc_node"      pkg="hardware_interface" type="adc_node"/>

    <!--node name="ina226_node"   pkg="hardware_interface" type="ina266_node"/-->

    <!--Joy nodes-->
    <node machine="Command" name="joy_node" pkg="joy" type="joy_node"/>
    <!--Joy parameters-->

    <!--LADAR Nodes-->
    <!--<node name="urg_node" pkg="urg" type="?"/>-->
    <!--node name="ladar_node" pkg="ladar" type="ladar_node"/-->

    <!--Motor Controller nodes-->
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="bucket_motor_node" pkg="motor_controller" type="bucket_motor_node"/>
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="linear_actuator_node" pkg="motor_controller" type="linear_actuator_node"/>
    <node machine="O-Droid" name="wheel_motor_node" pkg="motor_controller" type="wheel_motor_node"/>

    <!--Power Monitering nodes-->
    <!--node name="power_monitoring_node" pkg="power_monitoring" type="power_monitoring_node"/-->

    <!--Remote Control nodes-->
    <node machine="Command" name="remote_control_node" pkg="remote_control" type="xbox_controller_node"/>

    <!--Remote Control Paramaters-->
    <param name="remote_control/send_freq" value="10"/>
    <param name="remote_control/xbox_controller/mapping" value="2"/>


When i first ran the roslaunch, I got this output:

remote[odroid-0]: env: /home/odroid/ Permission denied

[odroid-0] process has died remote roslaunch failed to launch: O-Droid

I edited permissions on the O-Droid and now when I run my roslaunch file I get this output:
