Hello all!

I have a package that takes point cloud data from LiDAR and publishes it to a topic that can be viewed in Rviz. But when I run the launch file of the package, it gives me the error that can't locate node but node is there in the package. Anybody can help me? Thanks.

The error is:

ibrahim@ibrahim-aspire-v5-591g:~/catkin_workspaces/ce300_ws$ roslaunch ce30_driver_ros static_demo.launch

My node cpp file is located here:
