I was going through some threads like this answer

It says that ROS Jade supports 14.10 if I am not wrong.

I am currently at this stage of the installation process.

After doing a sudo apt-get update.

Should I install Xserver again by running

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-dev-lts-utopic mesa-common-dev-lts-utopic libxatracker-dev-lts-utopic libopenvg1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgles2-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgles1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic libgbm-dev-lts-utopic libegl1-mesa-dev-lts-utopic.

I am not sure whether to run the above command as it was mentioned that it can destroy the Xserver for 14.04 but obviously I am on 14.10.

Just to make it sure, so should I run the above one before I execute sudo apt-get install ros-jade-desktop-full ?

I don't know the background of that problem, but I would only install the other packages if the ros install does not work. It should be safe to try to install ros-jade-desktop-full. Either it works or it should say that it can't work.

sudo apt-get install ros-jade-desktop-full worked in my case. Trying out the tutorials now.
