Hi, when I try to compile a project I get this error:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/', needed by '/home/usr/catkin_ws/devel/lib/kautham/kautham-rosnode'

I have done everything: I downloaded the library console_bridge and install it.

When I try this command:

stat /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I get this:

stat: cannot stat ‘/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/’: No such file or directory

But when I use this command:

apt-file search /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libconsole_bridge

I get this:

libconsole-bridge-dev: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
libconsole-bridge0.2: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I would thank you if you can help me.

so how did you install it? Using apt, or git clone and then make etc?

I used sudo apt-get install apt-file, then sudo apt-get update, and finally sudo apt-get install libconsole-bridge-dev

It didn't work because I can't see the file

Then I used git clone to install it but still I have the same problem.

Can you clarify what 'It didnt' work' means exactly, error messages would be good. Where were you looking for the file that you couldn't find. Also git clone doesn't install things it downloads the source code.

Every time I compile my project I get this: make[2]: No rule to make target '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/', needed by '/home/usr/catkin_ws/devel/lib/kautham/Kautham_Viewer'*

I am looking for the libconsole_bridge at this path: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Okay, I've just installed libconsole-bridge-dev on my computer using the command:

sudo apt-get install libconsole-bridge-dev

This has installed the shared object fine for me. If you can't find the file on your system then apt-get must have given an error message when you tried to install it. if you type:

dpkg -L libconsole-bridge-dev

This will list all the file installed on your system from the named package, this is a good way of checking it installed okay and what got put where.

The error message you're getting when compiling your project is unrelated to this, because your project appears to be trying to build /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ from source itself. I would recommend getting the apt-get install working instead and adding a dependency to your project if you can, this will be easier than trying to build it yourself as part of your project.
