I was able to install fpc-src and Lazarus. Despite an error message when launching Lazarus (appearing only the first time Lazarus is opened) everything else looks fine and I was able to compile a simple Cocoa application.

Thanks for the confirmation my workaround works for you!

Indeed, I always get that message dialog with a new installation. I seem to recall it was because the "editormacroscript" package is not supported on macOS.

Thanks for reporting.
I fixed it and uploaded it as fpc-3.0.4-macos-x86_64-laz-2.pkg.

Thanks so Much!

So I have been moving from vb6 to Laz in the last few weeks, finally got a MAC and tried to install fpc yesterday, and recieved the message failed install yesterday.

I was pretty discourage, BUT you posted a fix last night and I got it all up ands running on the MAC, thank you so much.

Now time to move code to MAC to see if it will compile!

fpc cannot installed on MacOS Catalina ?

Hello there,

I'm a new member.
I used Pascal and Lazarus before, on older systems.

On Catalina the release I got from Lazarus-Source forge (3.0.4 64 bits and 2.0.8 ) was easy to install and successful ... but (???)

At first launch a message came telling that a paquet IS NOT installed.
But the first projet I tried worked, compiled, and built too ... but
The Icon off the resulting building had a white sign like non working apps ... but
Actually it worked, then removing this app and re-building worked the right way !

Yes it works on macOS Catalina ! :)
