Hi, I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10 server. I installed ROS hydro base, and follow the examples, but when I'm trying to make the Publiser/Suscriber example (C++) I have the following error

make[2]: * No rule to make target '/usr/lib/', needed by '/home/rosvm/catkin_ws/devel/beginner_tutorials/listener'. Stop.

make[1]: * [beginner_tutorials/CMakeFiles/listener.dir/all] Error 2

make: * [all] Error 2 Invoking "make" failed

There is and there will be no Debian packages of Hydro for Ubuntu 13.10. You may either:

AFAIK ROS Hydro is not yet fully supported on 13.10. Have you installed using the repository or from source?

You can try creating a symbolic link for the needed file

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

or if that does not work you could try installing the libboost-singals package used in 13.04

sudo apt-get install libboost-signals1.49-dev

I ran into the same issue compiling against ros indigo on trusty. soft link trick works well. I think this deserves a ticket on the ros issue tracker.
