I am trying out the example to convert ros image to opencv image from here. I am creating a new package roscv_conv and using a zed camera with ros indigo, on a Jetson tx1, to get this done (I will probably have to edit the topic being subscribed to , given in the example). I have installed OpenCV4Tegra (version But my current issue is that I am receiving the following error during catkin_make :

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/', needed by `/home/ubuntu/tst_ws/devel/lib/roscv_conv/roscv_conv_node'.  Stop.
make[1]: *** [roscv_conv/CMakeFiles/roscv_conv_node.dir/all] Error 2

My CMakeLists.txt looks like this:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS


find_package(OpenCV REQUIRED)

  CATKIN_DEPENDS cv_bridge image_transport roscpp sensor_msgs std_msg


add_executable(roscv_conv_node src/roscv_conv_node.cpp)

add_dependencies(roscv_conv_node sensor_msgs_generate_messages_cpp std_msgs_generate_messages_cpp)

Also, I have the following lines in my package.xml :


How do I fix this issue? I believe it has nothing to do with the actual code inside the src folder.

same problem here. In my case I'm using rpi3 with jessie. Our CMakeList.txt and package.xml are completely the same.

Did you find any solution?

Thanks in advance!


I figured out how to solve this problem. Probably it is a shoddy job, but the case is that it worked for me.

My case is RPI3 + Jessie + ROS Indigo (base)

I installed opencv (sudo apt-get install libopencv-dev) which comes with the 2.4.9 version.

So far everything is running right.

After that I installed image_transport and cv_bridge and the problem started to appear when a node included cv_bridge:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/', needed by `/home/ubuntu/tst_ws/devel/lib/my_package/my_node'.  Stop.

I moved to where the files are and created a symbolic link named "" and pointing to "". Catkin_make asked me to do the same with every "" I had.

Everything is running correctly now. I'm sure it is not a brilliant solution but, if a stupid idea works, probably is not that stupid!

I installed a normal OpenCV (not OpenCV4Tegra), version 2.4.13. In my case I found out that it is an issue with the platform.

Thank you! I finally found a solution that works for me, I edited my post with it.

I think the solution is similar for Jetson as well. Anyway, thank you for the info.

I figured out that I might require a few complex workarounds to rectify this issue. I was able to install a normal version of OpenCV (2.4.13) on my system (Jetson TX1). I would still like to know if there are any easy workarounds.

Edit: Please see this link as well.
