As above, I know enter the catkin space and $ source ./devel/setup.bash can resolve the problem. But every time when I open a new terminal I have to do this step. Is there another way to solve the problem?

Edit the file ~/.bashrc and at the end, add the line:

source PATH_TO_YOUR_CATKIN_WS/devel/setup.bash

This way every time you open a new terminal your catkin work space will be properly setup.
