I want to use gazebo plugins that use ignition messages in ROS project. I have installed libignition-msgs* libraries, but when I list all the types of messages in ROS with this command $ rosmsg list There is no ignition type of message.

How can I load the ignition-msgs into ROS?

Afaik, ignition-msgs is a protobuf based library. ROS 1 does not use Protobuf for its messaging, so using Protobuf msgs directly would seem to be impossible.

Also: you may want to ask this question on the Gazebo Answers site, as they are the developers and maintainers of Ignition.

Ignition messages are different from ROS messages, so you need a different command. Try

ign msg -l
