Linking error with pcl_ros_tf

asked 2012-01-20 03:06:57 -0500

I'm trying to build a package that uses the unstable version of perception_pcl. When I rosmake my package, I get:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpcl_ros_tf

I found one other post with a similar issue, which was resolved by removing some old files cmake left around in the build dir. I made sure to rosmake with --pre-clean, and am still having this issue. Ideas?

A fix for a similar problem (#5354) was committed today.

If you are using the Debian package, that fix is in the build pipeline and should be available in a few days.

If you want to try it right away, run the current svn version from this URL:

I was using trunk/perception_pcl_unstable from SVN. Doing a svn up fixed it. Thanks!

Hi there.

I had this error message for a slightly different reason. For any others getting this error, it may just be because you haven't built pcl_ros, which creates the library (if building from source). If this is the case, the following will fix it:

rosmake -s pcl_ros

[ The -s switch is just to stop it from trying to build the prerequisite packages ]
