Any thoughts? I'd like to be able to have everything updated, and if I should ever do a supo apt-get update then I'll destroy Lazarus.
However, I have found that using Fpcupdeluxe to install Lazarus / FreePascal locally (in your home directory) actually is both smoother and less error prone than having a global installation.If you choose to use Fpcupdeluxe, then if you download and run it, clicking the 'Fixes' button will install Lazarus 1.6.3+ (with FPC 3.0.0 IIRC).
I have a clean installation of Linux Mint KDE 18.1 (Serena). I downloaded the installation files from lazarus-ide.org, namely:fpc_3.0.0-151205_amd64.deb,fpc-src_3.0.0-151205_amd64, andlazarus-project_1.6.2-1_amd64.Lazarus works fine after I install these files. Linux wants to upgrade fpc to fpc-3.0.0+dfsg-2. If I do this Lazarus will no longer compile, giving me an error that Forms is not found, as well as Implementation is not found.I've tried various differences on a fresh OS installation, installing fpc-3.0.0+dfsg-2 first, installing fpc and lazarus from the synaptics package manager, etc. The only way that Lazarus will work is installing the 3 files shown above. However, now I'm nagged to update. Any thoughts? I'd like to be able to have everything updated, and if I should ever do a supo apt-get update then I'll destroy Lazarus.john
This is probably related to permission issues since Lazarus / FPC are installed globally.
Code: Pascal [Select]sudo apt-get install libX11-dev libgtk2.0-dev libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev libxtst-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libghc-x11-devIt literally told you that, the error messages you got.
FPC is installed for the current user: /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib/fpc/x.x.x/Afaik the same on Windows.
If you use an alternative means of install like fpcup that can not be guaranteed, however.
I'm sorry, I don't see where you said that.
