Hello, ROS experts. I referenced below two link.

On my project, there are two packages. For our convenience, I'll call these A and B project.

  • A project: This project have a general library, a pre-made library. (there are two library)
  • B project: This project will use two library from A project. --> There project placed on same catkin_workspace.

The problem is that I can't not use pre-made library on B project.

detail: I succeed it to install the pre-made library on catkin_ws/devel/lib. But, when I build the project B, It can not find pre-made library.

How can I fix this issue?

There is more detail on below description.

ProjectA, CMakeLists.txt

find_library(PreMade NAMES "caffe" PATHS "${PreMade_DIR}")  
message(STATUS "${PreMade}")  

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS  

    CATKIN_DEPENDS roscpp std_msgs  

add_library(PreMade EXCLUDE_FROM_ALL ${PreMade} )  
add_custom_command(TARGET PreMade POST_BUILD COMMAND cp ${PreMade}  ${CMAKE_LIBRARY_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY}/ )  
set_target_properties(PreMade PROPERTIES LINKER_LANGUAGE CXX )  
install( FILES ${PreMade}  

ProjectA, CMakeLists.txt

 find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS  
    add_executable(${PROJECT_NAME}_node ${SOURCES})

Could you not use an imported target for the "premade library"? After setting the location property, export it like you do in the catkin_package(..) call. The cp step should not be needed.
