CMake - Attachment.h: No such file or directory

I am refactoring a project that was purely visual studio into CMake in order to make it cross-platform. I am not extensively experienced in CMake, however this structure worked in a test project to the end of debugging the problem. It fails at including the first header file (attachment.h and I can't seem to get it to recognize it. I've searched around for other answers with the same problem but to no avail. Any and all help is appreciated.

EDIT: I should mention this works under windows, which is why I'm confused and reaching out to Stack Exchange.

Answer

On Unix-like systems (well, on EXT, UFS and other "Unixy" filesystems, to be precise) file accesses are case sensititive. Change

#include "Attachment.h"

to

#include "attachment.h"
