On running roslaunch rosserial_server serial.launch port:=/dev/ttyACM0 following is showing ....

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ roslaunch rosserial_server serial.launch port:=/dev/ttyACM0

I'm no rosserial wizard, but I would say this is the error:

ImportError: No module named diagnostic_msgs.msg

Have you got that package installed?

Thank you, I figured it out. I was being silly just needed to clone it into rosserial in my workspace and build it. Thanks for the reply though!
