Looks like "skipping incompatible" means the libraries were built for a different architecture. The information here may help you work through the problem

sorry, I kind of new user for the ROS. I really don't get that why my problem will relate to my system problem because I can compile others package but only this package had this kind problem.

Thanks for updating with a link to the repo.

You're getting this problem because the repository has the shared libraries checked into lib here and does not build them from source. So since you are running on a different platform the shared libraries are not compatible.

I found the reason why there have error cause me failure. basically is that I have to switch to ubuntu 14.04LTS 64bit then download the Leddar ROS package and Leddar SDK package and Qt5, after that everything solved! I believe those 32bit package was not very reliable and cause so many problem.
