Hi all,

I got a problem. I don't see a way to include an another launchfile from a launchfile that is not in the current package. I want to add arguments to this launchfile

Example :

To include an other launchfile I do this :

IncludeLaunchDescription( PythonLaunchDescriptionSource([ThisLaunchFileDir(), '/']), launch_arguments={'world': 'PATH'}.items(),

I'm not able to find a substitution to (in my example) the package gazebo_ros. Is it possible ?

An other question, how can I put multiple argument on this include like :

IncludeLaunchDescription( PythonLaunchDescriptionSource([ThisLaunchFileDir(), '/']), launch_arguments={'world': 'PATH','verbose':'true'}.items(),

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Hey @bastien, here is an example you can include launch file from another package:

                os.path.join(get_package_share_directory('another_package'), 'launch', '')
                'world': 'PATH',
                'verbose': 'true'

Your approach to pass multiple arguments seems to be correct.

hey, did you have to edit anything in the CmakeList and Package.XML for it to find 'another_package'
