ld: library not found for -l

To build as libary

Right Click->Properties->Build->Setting-Build Artifact->Dropdown to choose Shared/Static library

Difference between Shared / Static library

Now to include this library, copy the library to the project you want it and put it in a libs folder at the same level as the src level. Note, I am assuming that you have a src folder.

On this project Right Click->Properties->Build->Setting->Libraries->

  1. in the -l area add name of library without the prefix lib and without the suffix .so
  2. in the -L area add ../libs, remember its 2 dots since the current folder is src, not the root of the project 🙂 YEAH, I tried ./libs for 1 hours before trying out ../libs
