Changing user accounts [SOLVED]
« on: June 06, 2017, 02:18:46 pm »
Hello, due to keyboard issues, I have been forced to create a new Apple Mac user account. This has created some migration issues but I am slowly working through them. One problem I face is that my heavily customised Lazarus/Free Pascal setup has reverted back to standard. What do I need to copy from my old config folders to restore my setup?

The problem is sorted now. It seems that my previous attempt to copy the `~/.lazarus` folder didn't pick up everything. I've just tried it again and my IDE is back to its former glory!

Thanks for sharing the solution.
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;
