Diff_Drive_Controller not publishes cmd_vel_out on hardware

Hi, I have a setup that uses diff_drive_controller. Robot is working fine with gazebo.

diff_drive_controller is not working if I switch from simulation to real hardware interface. I have a motor controller from roboteq and use this implementation: https://github.com/rbonghi/roboteq_co...

Controller indicates everything ok. Controller Manager shows registered hardware interfaces. Connection to motor is ok.

It seems that diff_drive_controller does not publish any commands. I activated publish of cmd_vel_out, but even this is not published by diff_drive_controller.

Attached you will find my diff_drive_controller configuration.
