Hi I am trying to run a python file that has a node defined. When I run the launch file without the node and then individually the run the python file by doing "cd" and going into the directory and then running the file manually say ./ the file runs perfectly. But, when I try to give it as a node in the launch file itself i.e. <node name="action_move_robot1" pkg="rl_two_ur5" type=""/> it throws an error which is given below

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/murtaza/catkin_ws/src/rl_two_ur5/moveit_scripts/", line 97, in <module>
    group = moveit_commander.MoveGroupCommander(group_name, "robot2/robot_description", ns= "robot2")

I have already given the execution permission to the file and have checked the spelling mistakes there aren't any.
