Hi, I am using ROS Kinetic with a Nvidia TX2 board. I have a rosnode performing detection using faster rcnn framework on a camera feed. When I run it as a normal user using the command:

rosrun os_node os_cv_core 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 10 0

it throws the following error:

frcnn() running ...

However, the node runs fine if I run it after entering root mode. How do I run this command as a regular user (using sudo does not work, I get the error saying sudo: rosrun: command not found)?

Edit: I asked the same question on Nvidia forums earlier but the solution posted there hasn't worked.

This appears to be a cross-post of How to solve CudaSuccess (30 vs. 0) error? on the NVidia forums. Could you please mention that in the future?

Thanks for the tip. I edited the question.

Looking at your previous post it doesn't seem like it has reached a conclusion, so I would recommend to continue that thread over at the NVidia forums.

And from the description you provide ..

.. and some quick Googling this does not seem to be an issue caused by anything in ROS, but either a permission problem (on the needed device files) or something else with Caffe, CUDA or other NVidia infrastructure.

Thanks for the input. I will continue the thread over at Nvidia forums.
