You should run out of the build directory. This will allow Gazebo to find the plugins. In gazebo/examples/plugins/camera/build run gazebo ../

If you want Gazebo to find your custom plugins, add the paths to the .so files in the GAZEBO_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable.

And,I don't think this problem is caused by PATH issue,Because if it were,when I enter 'gazebo', it would come with some error message such as "cannot find plugin" Thank you~
