Now what?
« on: October 14, 2019, 08:38:02 pm »
OK, I managed to download and install the files:
  • fpc-src_3.0.4-2_amd64.deb,
  • fpc-laz_3.0.4-1_amd64.deb and
  • lazarus-project_2.0.4-0_amd64.deb
Possibly in this order (does it matter?)
No errors reported.
Now what? How do I run it? where was it installed?

It should be in your Applications menu, in "Programming Tools" (or however it's called in your distro).

Lazarus's files should be installed in /usr/share/lazarus/, fpc's in /usr/lib/fpc/ and fpc-src's in /usr/share/fpcsrc/.
Turbo Pascal 3 CP/M - Amstrad PCW 8256 (512 KB !!!) :P
Lazarus 2.0.2/2.0.4  - FPC 3.0.4 on:
(K|L)Ubuntu 12..16, Windows XP SP3, various DOSes.

Open a terminal and type "startlazarus".

Hmm! There is no "Programming Tools" or anything like it. (But I have a feeling that there once was.)


Lazarus's files should be installed in /usr/share/lazarus/, fpc's in /usr/lib/fpc/ and fpc-src's in /usr/share/fpcsrc/.

OK, thanks. Found them.
