[quote="marguedas, post:6, topic:714"]
rosrun will not find the executable because it is installed in the lib folder and not the bin folder for some reason. To get it working with rorsrun you can change https://github.com/facontidavide/PlotJuggler/blob/master/CMakeLists.txt#L52 to install in binthen rosrun plotjuggler PlotJuggler should work

That is not correct. Binaries in the `bin` folder can be invoked as is since they are on the `PATH`.

`rosrun` is being used to execute executables from a package specific folder (which is not on the `PATH`) which are under `lib/<pkgname>`. So `./devel/lib/plotjuggler/PlotJuggler` should be invoked with `rosrun plotjuggler PlotJuggler` (after sourcing the setup file from `.devel` and if the file is marked with the executable bit).
