What is the proper way of linking OpenCV on CMakeList.txt?

That's my CmakeList.txt:


     DEPENDS opencv



It causes the error below:

   CMake Error at airsim_ros/CMakeLists.txt:154 (target_link_libraries):
   Cannot specify link libraries for target "airsim_ros" which is not built by
   this project.

You need to specify target_link_libraries for each binary (executable/library) separately, not for the package as a whole.

From cmake docstargetmust have been created by add_executable command which expects a C/C++, however I'm using python

add_executable, target_link_libraries and include_directories are only relevant to c++ nodes. If you're package only contains python nodes you do not need those lines.

Python does not link against anything, so a CMakeLists.txt is very empty for Python packages.

See the Catkin documentation for more information.
