There is a set of FAQ at which talks about integration of Gazebo and ROS. However, for my purposes, I am required to be able to build Gazebo frequently and make changes to it, while also still using ROS. I am using Ubuntu 13.10 and have downloaded the source code for Gazebo, made some changes, and built it, but now need to integrate ROS. How might I go about doing such a thing?

You'll need to build gazebo_ros_packages from source.

It might be easiest to create a catkin workspace. Add gazebo_ros_packages to the workspace along with and of your own ROS code.

Well, this will be harder then i thought. I am unable to install catkininitworkspace. So I posted on and will await an answer.
