I tried compiling a Gazebo plugin that is a header file (with .h file extension), it says:

CMake Error: CMake can not determine linker language for target: gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene
CMake Error: Cannot determine link language for target "gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene".

The following is my CMakeLists.txt:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8 FATAL_ERROR)
find_package(gazebo REQUIRED)

add_library(gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene SHARED gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene.h)
target_link_libraries(gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene ${GAZEBO_LIBRARIES})

Any suggestions for a fix? P.s. I'm trying to use this plugin:

You cannot compile a header file.

But you also don't need to: jhu-lcsr-forks/gazebo_ros_pkgs/gazebo_plugins/src/gazebo_ros_moveit_planning_scene.cpp.

Note that this plugin is only present in the hydro-devel branches, so might not be compatible with Indigo or later releases of Gazebo.

Edit: any reason you're using that fork specifically? If not, then that plugin is also hosted in the hydro-devel branch of upstream (ie: gazebo_ros_pkgs): ros-simulation/gazebo_ros_pkgs/hydro-devel/gazebo_plugins.

And this is a cross-post of How to use gazebo world file objects for planning with Moveit on moveit-users. If you must do this, then please mention that in your post.

Thanks gvdhoorn! I apologize for the cross-post omission; I was not aware of the need to do so. I have made the necessary edit.

re: cross-posts: there are no rules about this, other than netiquette. Cross-posts lead to duplication and waste of effort and split discussions. It's just not a very nice thing to do in online communities.
