Cant find library in /usr/bin/ld

0 votes

Whenever I try and compile my program, it gives me this error. also I'm using g++ commands:

usr/bin/ld: cannot find -l<nameOfTheLibrary>

I've created a symlink to my library lcated in the other directory. Is there anything else I need to do to make this work?

Say your library "libxyz.so" is located in:

/home/user/myDir

then link it to your program using:

g++ -L/home/user/myDir -lxyz myprog.cpp -o myprog
