Most of the tutorials I found is for stage version 3.x.x.. But Since Fuerte stage version is 4.x.x.

I use Ubuntu 12.04 and on this version ROS Electric can not be installed.

Unfortunately the Stage package is poorly documented. But I've used Stage 4.x.x with Hydro before. I recall there were some minor changes I had to make to my .world files (adding a new dimension to some variables) to make them work with the new version. But other than that everything seemed to work fine.
