Looks like you didn't properly build the packages or have a wrongly set up ROS workspace. You can install hector_slam also by using

sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-hector-slam

which should work out of the box.

Fact is I have also tried that one. Also tried removing the git repository and pulling again. Other packages work ok from the workspace like rbx1 etc, but it also have catkin installed. groovy workspace is like ...groovy/groovy_workspace/sandbox directory. how to know if my workspace is properly set
