E.g To use Gstreamer, I meson built new version with following commands.

meson --prefix=/media/jai/Entertainment/Software/gstreamer/gst-build-installed --reconfigure build/  
ninja -C build/  
meson install -C build/

Now I have this directory image description

And it has pkg-configs also image description

What changes I have to make in Cmakelist.txt & package.xml to link this Gstreamer?

I have tried below changes. But no luck till now.


SET(ENV{PKG_CONFIG_PATH} "/media/jai/Entertainment/Software/gstreamer/gst-build-installed/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig" $ENV{PKG_CONFIG_PATH})

find_package(PkgConfig REQUIRED)
pkg_check_modules(GST1.0 REQUIRED gstreamer-1.0)
catkin_package(CATKIN_DEPENDS roscpp
    DEPENDS Boost GST1.0
    INCLUDE_DIRS include
    LIBRARIES mypkg)
include_directories(include ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS} ${Boost_INCLUDE_DIRS} ${GST1.0_INCLUDE_DIRS})
target_link_libraries(mypkg ${catkin_LIBRARIES} ${GST1.0_LIBRARIES} ${Boost_LIBRARIES})



After all above modification, package is still using stock gstreamer instead of new one. I doubt it might be able to access include files but not LIBS.
