I have a launch file, with following:

 <!-- Launch Gazebo -->   
 <include file="$(find turtlebot_gazebo)/launch/turtlebot_world.launch"> </include>
 <!-- Launch AMCL -->  
 <include file="$(find my_package)/launch/my_amcl.launch">    </include>
 <!-- Launch Move base -->  
 <!-- Launch Rviz -->

Inside this launch file I want to also run a python script located in my_package/scripts. I have try <include file="$(find my_package)/scripts/"> </include> but it doesn't works. Is there a way to do that?

this is not the same. I tried that, but didn't work. SO I've tried

  <node pkg="my_package" name="" type="" output="screen"> 

but it didn't work

Did you make your script executable? has to be an executable script. See the example python node for details
