I've done this. Now i don't have the old project opened on the start. But i can't do anything, because of this message. It shows when i launch Lazarus.

The removal of the ~/.lazarus removes the complete lazarus config.

The trouble is that most package systems leave the configuration behind on deinstall, so for a full refresh do:

1. remove the lazarus pacakge in software center
2. remove the ~/.lazarus dir
3. install the lazarus package again. This will probably make some Ubuntu default ~/.lazarus

The lazy would simply manually configure lazarus though. There are only 2 or 3 settings to do.

Hello.

1. remove the lazarus package in software center

And do not forget to remove fpc as well ( do a fp search in synaptic ) ...

Synaptic done, you could also remove the folder /usr/lib/lazarus ...

And see in /etc if there is no fpc.cfg or some /lazarus folders and remove it ...
