Hello, I am running ros2-foxy on ubuntu 20.04

I am writing a launch file to combine two node at once.

Node executable rgbd requires 2 files as arguments as below. $ ros2 run ros2_orbslam rgbd ~/SLAM/ORB_SLAM2/Vocabulary/ORBvoc.txt ~/ws/src/ros2-ORB_SLAM2/src/rgbd/TUM1.yaml

To pass these argument as parameters for, I created below script.

import os
import launch
import launch_ros.actions
from launch.actions import DeclareLaunchArgument
from launch.actions import IncludeLaunchDescription
from ament_index_python.packages import get_package_share_directory
from launch.launch_description_sources import PythonLaunchDescriptionSource
from launch.substitutions import LaunchConfiguration
from launch_ros.actions import Node
from launch.actions import TimerAction      #For delayed launch of node

def generate_launch_description():
    ros2_orbslam_dir = get_package_share_directory('ros2_orbslam')
    voc_file = os.path.join('~','SLAM/ORB_SLAM2/Vocabulary', 'ORBvoc.txt')
    param_file = os.path.join('~','ws/src/ros2-ORB_SLAM2/src/rgbd','TUM1.yaml')
    pkg_realsense2_camera = get_package_share_directory('realsense2_camera')
    launch_realsense2 = IncludeLaunchDescription(
                os.path.join(pkg_realsense2_camera, 'launch', '')
ld = launch.LaunchDescription([
        default_value = voc_file,
        description = 'Full path to the VOC file to load'
        default_value = param_file,
        description = 'Full path to the VOC file to load'
    TimerAction(period = 1.0,
                package="ros2_orbslam", executable="rgbd",
                parameters = [
print(f"VOC FILE: {voc_file}")
print(f"PARAM_FILE: {param_file}")

return ld

The path looks ok and there exist the files however it fails to launch the node with errors. Here is the result.
