I've tried including BFL into catkin using both

find_package(BFL REQUIRED) and find_package(orocos_bfl) but ROS is unable to find them. I've even tried find_package(bfl REQUIRED) without success.

Any ideas? bfl, orocos-bfl are both installed on my system and I can roscd to bfl.

I had to do something like that for compiling with bfl:

pkg_check_modules(BFL REQUIRED bfl)
message("BFL include dirs:" ${BFL_INCLUDE_DIRS})
message("BFL library dirs:" ${BFL_LIBRARY_DIRS})

Then don't forget the:


Hope this helps.

Hi guys, I don't know where to add above lines. To the CMakeLists.txt who uses orocos-bfl? Or to orocos-bfl's CMakeLists.txt? Thank you.

Hi. You should add it to the CMakeLists.txt who uses orocos-bfl. Cheers
