My launch-files do not get placed into the devel/share folder also I state inside CMakeLists.txt. The 4 files are inside the src/<pkg-name>/launch folder.

   # install the launch files
     install(DIRECTORY launch/
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


Try removing the last "/" in the install line.

Launch files are not copied into the devel folder. Using the install tag, they are installed in the respective folder in install, if you do a catkin_make install

I see: catkin_make install triggers install inside CMakeList. Still the question how to get them into devel?

you don't need them in devel. You use those from src, if you source devel/setup.bash.
