AFTER UPDATING UBUNT LAZARUS COULD NOT BE STARTED.

Hi,

Maybe this can help.

I've downloaded Lazarus for Linux:

1- fpc_3.0.4-3_amd64.deb
2- fpc-src_3.0.4-2_amd64.deb
3- lazarus-project_1.8.4-0_amd64.deb

Then I'd installed (in order 1,2,3) on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and Lazarus WAS RUNNING PERFECT.

OBS: When installing the fpc_3.0.4-3_amd64.deb the Installer Packages informed that was recommended to update the fpc_3.0.4-3_amd64.deb. But, I didn't update it.

Next day, when updating LINUX, the fpc_3.0.4-3_amd64.deb was updated automatically, AND Lazarus could not be started.

AND I COULD NOT RE-INSTALL IT, CAUSE THE INSTALLER PACKAGES DID NOT INSTALL fpc_3.0.4-3_amd64.deb, INFORMING THAT ALREADY WAS INSTALLED A NEW VERSION ON THE SYSTEM. AND BECUASE OF THIS NEW VERSION, ALSO lazarus-project_1.8.4-0_amd64.deb could not be re-installed.

So, I had to uninstall all fp by Synaptic and then I could re-install Lazarus again, in the the folloing order 1,2,3.

And after that, I'd search all fp in Synaptic and lock all files to prevent new updating (*).

I hope this can help someone.

Regards,


* Locking with Synaptic Package Manager:
Go to Synaptic Package Manager (System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager).
Click the search button and type the package name.
When you find the package, select it and go to the Package menu and select Lock Version.
