Hello all, I am working on a project where I would like to use ROS and OpenCV to detect a gutter using the A.R Drone 2.0 and when it is detected I want the drone to fly over the gutter to essentially clean out the leaves using the propellers. I want to know everything I need to install from the operating system to the programs. So which "Linux" I have to use, which ROS i need to install and which OpenCV I need as well. Any libraries I have to install. Any help would be appreciated. I plan to use C++ for coding, but willing to use Pyhton as well.

We're here to help, but as it is your question really reads like "please do my work for me". If you could edit your question and ask some specific questions about things we could probably help you better.

Please note that in your other question I did give you some advice on what library (ROS package actually) to use.

The distributions page on the wiki will help you figure out which version of Linux to use once you've figured out what version of ROS you're going to use.

Hm. So this is actually really more of a duplicate then. I seemed to have missed that.

Install ROS indigo over ubuntu 14.04. Try to explore ardrone_autonomy. It will help you to start with. Here I have pushed current work of mine. ( ) You can make use of it.
