Using dbexport

Unfortunately, as it turned out, the problem is not of a solution so simple as that...

When attempting to install any another component, the IDE kept complaining about missing packages which are in fact installed and I could not even rebuild the IDE itself anymore!

I then removed Lazarus completely from my system (including the configuration files in home directory) and did a fresh install. Right after that, I attempted to just rebuild the IDE (without installing any new component). I then get the IDE complaining that it "Cannot find lazcontrolsdsgn used by Lazarus" (which is, in fact, installed). And end up involved in this mess: https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php?topic=38728.0, to which no one seems to have been able to provide a really working solution.

At this moment, I cannot any more use Lazarus under Linux!  >:(

Any hints and suggestions would be welcome.

You cannot use Lazarus build from the Distro Packages. This is the Problem.

I never use any package for fpc and lazarus from the distro for a long time, because i have always trouble with this packages and crosscompiling.

My personal suggestion is
  Plan A : use fpcupdeluxe (my absolute favorite)
  Plan B : use the packages comming from the fpc team and lazarus from git and selfcompiled

Plan A works for me on Ubuntu, Debian and Raspbian for years. I never tested Plan B :-)

@af0815,

I cannot agree, because I have used that installation, from the Linux Mint repository, for more than an year! I used to be able to install components and rebuild the IDE without any hassles. My current problems appeared when I attempted to install the lazdbexport component package which is shipped with Lazarus.

I have never heard of 'fpcupdeluxe' and do not want to install anything from git which will require compilation from scratch (which, in my personal experience in accordance with Murphy's Law, will only create more poblems!)

Regards,

You have asked for a suggestion  ;D

I use fpc and Lazarus for my every day work for years, with fpcup and fpcupdeluxe.

So use your packages comming from the distros. Use it 'as is' and dont complain if somethings goes wrong. The packages from the distros and the real world for fpc/lazarus are not always compatible.

Good for you. Of what I have seen of the "deluxe" thing, it just adds yet another layer of complication on what should be simple and easy (like installing FPC/Lazarus and packages under MS-Windows).

I have myself used FPC/Lazarus for years too, under both Windows and Linux, without any hassles up to now.

I am not "complaining", I am reporting a problem in the hope of some polite person come up with a simple working solution which does not involve imposing a favorite toy over me.

If the distribution packages which comes with Linuxes are so "useless", why are they there anyway? Well, I prefer to strick to them, thank you!
