A friend of mine sent me a rpi2 + picam for me to take images with to test our robot's opencv. However, the rpi2 he sent was configured for the robot and has a static ip. I changed the settings in the interface file and fixed it. Now the problem is I'm unable to see the picam's footage in real time using a python script I wrote. It takes the image and puts it into an opencv window, however....

There's no desktop installed on this rpi2! I also noticed X11-common was already installed and still nothing happens when I run the script. It just hangs....

On my own pi configured with raspbian and xfce the opencv window pops up and shows me a near realtime video stream of the rpi camera. I've never used ros before so is it safe to just do

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ?
