Thank you, I'll try that shortly.
There is a file in the install folder with a orange cheetah icon inside a gear labeled Lazarus. Use that to run the Lazarus IDE. Do not run the "lazarus" executable in the lazarus folder directly.Reason being, I set both the compiler configuration path (where to find fpc.cfg) and the lazarus config folder in a script which then launches lazarus.In lazarus.sh (paths are populated during install):export PPC_CONFIG_PATH=/home/pi/your/install/folder/fpc/binexport PATH=$PPC_CONFIG_PATH:$PATH/home/pi/your/install/folder/lazarus/lazarus -pcp=/home/pi/your/install/folder/lazarus/configWhat does this do and why?It sets up the compiler and lazarus configuration upon launch, allowing you (or anyone else) to have multiple installations of fpc or lazarus that do not interfere with each other. In other words, I am being nice and not just dumping a fpc configuration in ~/.fpc.cfg, potentially screwing up some other configuration you may have had.Regarding Linux arm cross compile on Windows, it was in there previously and it will be in there again, I just can't say when.
Whatever folder you choose to install. The default is /home/pi/Development/FreePascal
Pi users, if your interested I am developing an SDL 2 installer along with a few bare demos which should work with either the minimal or the more complete compilers mentioned above. Let me know if you're inerested in using the SDL 2 on the Pi and I may setup a forum for it.
