UR5e MoveIt setup with universal_robot driver

I am using the 'universal_robot' driver for an UR5e, and I would like to run moveit. With the old driver, I launched the following command to start the connection, and then start the MoveIt.

ur_bringup ur5_bringup.launch robot_ip:=IP_OF_THE_ROBOT

However, how should be done with the new driver? bringup launch doesn't exist anymore for the UR5e. I tried to start first ur5e.launch before rviz. Rviz uploads the configuration properly but not for the real connected robot... And I can't see any other method to set a connection to the robot Ip as with the other driver.

How is the connection performed with universal_robot driver?

I would suggest downloading the new Universal Robot drivers from:

then you can use ur_robot_driver ur5e_bringup.launch robot_ip:=XXXX as per usual. This package does not include any of the robot description files so you still will need the 'universal_robot' package.
