So i finally just got hydro installed on osx 10.9 yesterday, and now i want to put in some gazebo plugins (gps for now). I downloaded the source for hector_gazebo_plugins, built them, and then modified the husky model in .gazebo/models/husky folder and just added the novatel gps plugin at the very end.

Without the plugin, everything is fine, but once i put in the plugin, the gazebo terminal is spitting these errors out:

2014-09-19 11:27:18.974 gzclient[9332:507] invalid drawable
2014-09-19 11:27:20.737 gzclient[9332:507] invalid drawable

Also when i launch it, a window pops up saying gzclient has failed.

I looked around around and saw that people where saying that gazebo itself does not call ros::init(), but the plugin itself. I couldn't find anywhere in the source where it had a ros::init() command, so then i thought maybe i don't have some dependencies installed.

cd ~/edt/igvc_ws
rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro hydro -y

And i get home-brew errors saying there is no such formula:

Krystian:~/edt/scipio$ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro hydro -y

Does anybody know/had experience with using hector gazebo plugins for osx 10.9 and what do i need to do? I need this GPS, IMU, and laser scanner.
