depending on how you installed gazebo:

a) If from source, then the file is where you downloaded the repository:


b) If from debian (sudo apt-get install gazebo..):

you can find only the header file by running $ locate RandomVelocityPlugin.hh, it should give you a path similar to: /usr/include/gazebo-5.1/gazebo/plugins/

Thanks, I had found the header, but wasn't able to figure out why the source c++ file isn't there. Is there any way I can add it to my source? OR In which folder can I try out writing new plugins?

If you install from debian you don't get the source files, you need to download the repository. If you want to start writing plugins you do it differently. Check out the plugin tutorials:
