As in any other cmake project, you'd put target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME) <NAME_OF_LIBRARY_TO_LINK>) in your CmakeLists.txt. There wasn't any ros-specific cmake macro for using an installed library in a node in rosbuild, and if I understand correctly, the new catkin build system does not use ANY ros-specific macros. I haven't actually used catkin yet, though. Some useful links:

thanks for the answer I tried: target_link_libraries(${NAME_OF_MY_NODE) <name_of_library_to_link>) target_link_libraries(${NAME_OF_MY_NODE) NAME_OF_LIBRARY_TO_LINK) target_link_libraries(NAME_OF_MY_NODE NAME_OF_LIBRARY_TO_LINK)

But doesn't work

other suggestions?

You need to replace NAME_OF_LIBRARY_TO_LINK by the name of the library to link.

Please state exactly what you actually did and what the errors are by copy/pasting this information and updating your original question. Different cmake commands than you used and "But doesn't work" will not enable anyone to infer any solutions.
