Sigh ....

I should have been clearer I guess.  Ram, when you used the dpkg commands, it showed you that apt thinks it has  fpc-laz, fpc-src, lazarus-ide-2.0, lazarus-project and lazarus-src-2.0. Unfortunately, you have removed some or all of the files associated with those packages, manually, with the rm command.

So, you should not have proceeded until you cleaned up that situation. I should have mentioned that the actual package names vary depending on where they origionally came from, thats why the dpkg -l command to determine the actual names for you to use in the "sudo apt purge <package_name>"

I am afraid you need to remove them, one by one, in reverse order until the dpkg -l | grep <fpc or lazarus> commands return nothing.

Please do not proceed with installing until you have removed the broken ones.

And, again, I should have been clearer, when installing, I said to check for error messages, I should have added, do not proceed if you get an error message. 

Generally, when someone gives you a set of instructions, step by step, you should stop when one step fails !  The following steps will probably fail too !

So, please repeat my previous set of instructions, this time, using the correct package name in the "sudo apt purge <package_name>".

You should be able to get to the stage where you can run -

Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1. dpkg -l | grep fpc <enter>
  2. dpkg -l | grep lazarus <enter>

and get no response. Do not proceed to install anything until you can get to that stage.  Just to be clear, do not try and install FPC nor Lazarus until you get no response back to the two commands above.

Use the command -

Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1. sudo apt purge <package_name> <enter>

Where the package_name is, one by one -
lazarus-src-2.0
lazarus-project
lazarus-ide-2.0
fpc-src
fpc-laz

I think you are going to have problems with that stage, so lets get it done before proceeding !

Synaptic Package Manager is a GUI tool that can help you remove broken package easily. And GDebi Package Installer can help you automatically install required missing packages.

Yeah, but neither are installed by default on Mint, its an Ubuntu clone.  And installing more packages right now sounds like a bit of a mistake until that apt database is thinking straight again.

My advice is -- do not use deb packages -- use install script for fpc (called "one big file" in fpc download section), then install Lazarus from source.

It's quite straightforward, you have control where fpc and lazarus will be installed (and you should put it under your user path).
Also, unistalling is quite simple then -- it's just removing these folders.

For details see (only now you use the latest fpc and lazarus versions, of course): https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,35214.msg246573.html#msg246573

OK, sounds like w are making progress.  By now I hope you are trying to understand the commands you are using ?  Its your system and it really should be your informed decision about what happens to it. Blindly following instructions form someone else, no matter how well intended is always risky.

OK, Lets see of anything remains -

Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1. find /usr -name "lazarus-*" 2> /dev/null
  2.  
  3. find /usr -name "fpc-*" 2> /dev/null

If both those command come back cleanly, thats good, proceed. If you get a response from either command, you will have to decide if its an issue or not. Maybe you should remove it manually or, maybe you should not.  If its there incidentally, leave it alone, if it looks like its part of a previous install, maybe show us before acting ? 

Remember that if you remove something you should not, really bad things will happen. On the other hand, if you leave it there and your next install fails, its easy to start again. So, if in doubt, leave it there !

Next, given the twisted history, maybe its a good idea to remove any old config files / directories ? This will find them, you know how to remove them by now.
Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1. find / -name ".fpc.cfg" 2> /dev/null
  2. find / -name "fpc.cfg" 2> /dev/null
  3.  
  4. find / -name ".lazarus*" 2> /dev/null

Only you can decide if you want to keep them, I suggest you dont !

All that done ?

So, if you are happy with the above, maybe its time to start reinstalling !  You know how to do that too ! (but remember, use "apt" and use the "./" in front of the deb names.

Or, as several people have mentioned, consider a source install, at least for Lazarus.  I personally would not use anything else. Its a touch harder but much more flexible and you will not find your self in the mixed up state you got into just now. Your call. People here will help you either way.

with that command, I found nothing,  and I feel that nothing bothers anymore

Quote
ram@ram-4G:~$ find /usr -name "lazarus-*" 2> /dev/null
ram@ram-4G:~$ find /usr -name "fpc-*" 2> /dev/null
ram@ram-4G:~$ find / -name ".fpc.cfg" 2> /dev/null
ram@ram-4G:~$ find / -name "fpc.cfg" 2> /dev/null
ram@ram-4G:~$ find / -name ".lazarus*" 2> /dev/null

then I tried to install again with the command
Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1.     cd <some_dir>
  2.     ls -l *.deb
  3.     // all good
  4.     sudo apt install ./fpc-laz_3.2.2_amd64.deb
  5.     // all good
  6.     sudo apt install ./fpc-src_3.2.2_amd64.deb
  7.     // all good
  8.     sudo apt install ./lazarus-project_2.2.0-0_amd64.deb
  9.     // all good

i open lazarus, but there are parts missing, how to fix it?

You will have to tell us what piece is missing. Neither image you have posted appear to be missing anything.

There is no object inspector. Use Window > Center a lot window and select Object Inspector from the menu.

And the missing Messages window should appear when you compile something.
