I use Xubuntu 14.10 x64 to develop dmMediaConverter. I have no issues.

Thx for recomendations, uh.. still problems.

Now I installed chakra 2013.05., I first run the live cd and successfully updated the repos (which had lazarus 1.2.6), when I installed on HDD I get this messages when I try to update:

Synchronizing databases...

error: failed retrieving file 'lib32.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error
error: failed to update lib32 (download library error)
error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error
error: failed to update core (download library error)
error: failed retrieving file 'platform.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error
error: failed to update platform (download library error)
error: failed retrieving file 'desktop.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error

error: failed retrieving file 'apps.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error

error: failed retrieving file 'games.db' from mirror.rit.edu : Could not resolve host: mirror.rit.edu; Unknown error
error: failed to update games (download library error)
error: failed to synchronize any databases
error: failed to init transaction (download library error)

Command finished with errors!


EDIT: Solved this, it seems I need to edit mirror list with vim /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and enable Australia server (disable US server)

Just to notify everybody that I settled with Linux Mint 17 with KDE desktop, it works nice and Lazarus does not crash. Like Leledumbo said, anything with good KDE support. I'll try others distros as well, but for now, Mint with Laz 1.2.6 is my entry point to Linux development.

Thx for your answers, if I can help someone with Mint I would be happy to that.
