I am trying to do this tutorial - link. But when I load the Kinect sensor to the gazebo world manually I get the following error in terminal:

[Wrn] [msgs.cc:1852] Conversion of sensor type[depth] not supported.
[Err] [Plugin.hh:180] Failed to load plugin libgazebo_ros_openni_kinect.so: libDepthCameraPlugin.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[Wrn] [msgs.cc:1852] Conversion of sensor type[depth] not supported.
[Wrn] [Publisher.cc:141] Queue limit reached for topic /gazebo/default/pose/local/info, deleting message. This warning is printed only once.

I think I can solve it by putting the libgazebo_ros_openni_kinect.so file in the GAZEBO_PLUGIN_PATH. But the problem is I cannot find this file anywhere. I think I might have accidently deleted it and some other components. I also tried to compile it from the source code from - link. But I was not able to do so. So, it would be helpful if anyone could post/share libgazebo_ros_openni_kinect.so file or point me in the right direction.

Thank You.
