I have an external .so library to link. If I put it only in src/lib/ and try to find_library() it, the catkin_make always fail. But if I manually put the .so file in devel/lib/, it works. Is there any way that I can automatically copy the .so file from src/lib/ to devel/lib/ ?

Here is a confusing thing. When I output the ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}, it is the src folder, but when I use this address to find_library, it will be directed to devel folder. But I didn't put .so file in devel/lib/.

My code in CMakeLists.txt:


Corresponding output in terminal:

PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR: /home/zhiyang/mfp_workspace/src/srsnode_barcode_reader
DYNAMSOFT_LIBRARY: /home/zhiyang/mfp_workspace/devel/lib/

The ROS package for the prosilica gige SDK does something similar: . It's a bit more complex because it's also packaging libraries for several different architectures and detecting the architecture at build time.
