hi, when i use catkin_make_isolated, i can build executable successfully. but i cant use "rosrun package_name xxx" to execute it. [rosrun] Couldn't find executable named xxx below /home/xxx/catkin_ws/src/package_name

the executable is /home/xxx/catkin_ws/devel_isolated/package_name/lib/package_name/xxx. how can i execute it using rosrun?

thanks in advance!

Hi, you can navigate to the catkin_ws

cd ~/catkin_ws


source ./devel_isolated/setup.bash

then you can try doing rosrun again.

if this doesn't work you might have to check if you have added it as an executable
