initial version

There are five major versions between gazebo2 and gazebo7 which implies 5 cycles of changes in the API/ABI, I would say that obtaining a failure in compilation of third party code wrote for gazebo2 is somehow expected.

If you goal is to make the Baxter simulation code with gazebo7 then you will need to patch the errors, You will find useful the gazebo migration guide. For keeping compatibility between all the gazebo versions in the code of Baxter I would suggest to use conditionals (there are examples in the gazebo_ros_pkgs repository).

If you don't want to spend time into porting Baxter simulation code to gazebo7 and just want to use it out of the box then yes, the way is to uninstall gazebo7 and install gazebo2.
