initial version

Kinetic's default Gazebo version is Gazebo 7, so if you try you try to install the hector plugins from the command line it expects you to have Gazebo 7.

What you need to do instead is build the plugins from source. To do that, you download the files from here:

Add it to your catkin_ws/src directory and run catkin_make. (create a catkin workspace if you haven't already done so).

Most likely you'll get loads of errors due to deprecated functions. (since the hector kinetic plugins were made for Gazebo 7 and you're running Gazebo 9). Since you'll be only using the gps plugin you can go ahead and remove all the other plugins from CMakeLists.txt (so that only the gps plugin is built by catkin).

To help you with the deprecated functions take a look at this page:
