Hi dear I'm working with Ubuntu 12.10 and ros hydro I want to use qt libraries in ros. So I try to use simple library like "QDebug" and I write this program and Cmake

#include "QDebug"
#include "ros/ros.h"

int main(int argc, char** argv)
  ros::init(argc, argv, "Qt_test");
  qDebug()<<"Hello world";
    return 0;

and cmake file:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.4.6)
find_package(Qt4 COMPONENTS QtCore QtGui)


# Set the build type.  Options are:
#  Coverage       : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization, w/ code-coverage
#  Debug          : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization
#  Release        : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  RelWithDebInfo : w/ debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  MinSizeRel     : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization, stripped binaries
#set(ROS_BUILD_TYPE RelWithDebInfo)


#set the default path for built executables to the "bin" directory
#set the default path for built libraries to the "lib" directory

#uncomment if you have defined messages
#uncomment if you have defined services

#common commands for building c++ executables and libraries
#rosbuild_add_library(${PROJECT_NAME} src/example.cpp)
#target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} another_library)
#rosbuild_link_boost(${PROJECT_NAME} thread)
rosbuild_add_executable(first_test src/first_test.cpp)
target_link_libraries(qt_test ${QT_LIBRARIES})

but when I try to make my package with rosmake this error occurd.

{------------------------------------------------------------------------------- mkdir -p bin cd build && cmake -Wdev -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=/opt/ros/hydro/share/ros/core/rosbuild/rostoolchain.cmake ..

I found my problem rosbuild_add_executable(first_test src/first_test.cpp) target_link_libraries(qt_test ${QT_LIBRARIES}) Make both qt_test, or both first_test.
