I am trying to use PR2 with new gazebo 1.3 on ubuntu 12.04 and ros-fuerte. The specific purpose is to test contact sensors all over the robot surface (tactile sensing).

As long as I know gazebo 1.3 is stand alone program, so I need ROS-Enabled Gazebo Model Plugin for PR2.

From below link's answer, I read that there is no plugin for PR2 now. If my understanding is correct, I have to make my own plugin over entire PR2 functions. Is it correct? or Does it mean impossible to make the plugin for ros now?

That is correct, you'll need to make your own PR2 plugin until an official ROS plugin is released. You can make Gazebo plugins that talk ROS.

Take a look at the DRC simulator package for examples:
