[EDIT] @ Juha, in attachment, script to install Lazarus for nearly all Linux distro.
For the compressed file of the Lazarus release, the easy way is to use the DEB file of Mattias, decompress it somewhere (a DEB file is a tar compressed file).
Go in the decompressed file to the directory /usr/share/ and compress /Lazarus directory.
This will be the compressed file for the release.
Sorry, I was busy all yesterday and then fell asleep early. I am getting old ...

Anyway, your scripts for installing dependencies look impressive! Have you really tested with all those distros?
The ArchLinux version may not be as useful as the others because a rolling distro updates their own repo very quickly with the latest Lazarus release. Anyway, a script for it does not harm either.
For Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, RedHat and SuSe they are very useful.
I will test some of them later but I don't promise to test all.
I may suggest you as an assistant release manager for Mattias. Now he does it out of responsibility although I know he is busy with other tasks.
That is, if you want it. That would maybe imply write access to the SourceForge project directories. I don't see why there should be middle men.

I wonder why nobody tested the installation files. I personally don't need them but many others asked for them.
m.abudrais was only one of them.
I would have imagined that all those people rush with enthusiasm to test, but no.  :(

Hello.

@Juha --> ok, thanks.

For people who have problems when installing in Linux the last Lazarus release (dependencies missing, fpc stuff missing, fpc.cfg not good, etc...).

Here a  way to install a new release for any Linux distro without changing you actual config:

1 ) Download the official DEB release from the official Lazarus download page.
   (Here example using lazarus-project_1.8.0RC3-0_amd64.deb)

2 ) Copy that DEB file somewhere (example /home/you)

3 ) Extract the DEB file:
   In console do:
   # cd /the_directory_of_the _deb_file
   # ar vx lazarus-project_1.8.0RC3-0_amd64.deb

   This will create control.tar.gz and data.tar.xz.

4 ) Extract data.tar.xz with:
   # tar xvf data.tar.xz

5 ) Copy from the extracted file: /usr/share/lazarus

6 ) Paste that directory where you want (example /home/you).

7 ) Run your new release with:
   # /the_directory_you_choose/lazarus.

8 ) If dependencies are missing, run the the installdep_youros script (in previous topic: ---> attachment ---> /script)
   # cd /the_diretory_of_the_script
   # ./installdep_youros.sh

9) Enjoy.

There is one feature that I would like to see implemented correctly and that is the alignment of child controls on the form.

For example drop a panel on the form, and then drop say a button into the panel as a child, right click the button and select "Align ..." menu item, now if you choose to align "Center in window" in Delphi the button would be aligned central to the parent, eg the panel but in Lazarus the button is aligned center to the form. I don't know if this is a bug or by design but this is something I would like to see work more like Delphi does.

Maybe there is something cooking for 1.8RC4. :)

@knuckles, you should open a new thread for the alignment issue. It is not specific to 1.8RC3 anyhow.
The mailing list can be used, too, to better reach the developers.

I used fpcupdeluxe version 1.4.0k and everything worked fine.
https://github.com/newpascal/fpcupdeluxe/releases

But this surely does not increase the counts on sourceforge.

Edit: I forgot to mention, that I used the "fixes"-branch and it worked for w7 and ubuntu 17.04.

This seems to be a sourceforge issue.

Need to see what can be done...
