use GLM library

When In try to load the GLM library, I get following error. Although I have included it in the header file as -- #include <glm/glm.hpp>  .

And also, as per the instruction on the GLM website, I have extracted the library in my project folder. Can anyone please help me out?

Please check that you've added GLM library to CMakeLists.txt.

We advise to write or find online FindXXX.cmake scripts (for example, the one for GLM can be copied from here: After that you can properly set up libraries using find_package(glm).
