On Linux Mint 21.3 newly installed on recently built system.
So, in my case, it has nothing to do with it being an older version of Linux Mint.

gdebi - get the Dependencies not satisfiable error
dpkg - dependency problems, leaving unconfigured...

But, dpkg did give clues as to what was missing:

Selecting previously unselected package lazarus-project.
(Reading database ... 631231 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack lazarus-project_3.2.0-0_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking lazarus-project (3.2.0) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of lazarus-project:
 lazarus-project depends on libgtk2.0-dev (>= 2.6.0); however:
  Package libgtk2.0-dev is not installed.
 lazarus-project depends on fpc-laz (= 3.2.2); however:
  Package fpc-laz is not installed.
 lazarus-project depends on fpc-src (= 3.2.2); however:
  Package fpc-src is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package lazarus-project (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Processing triggers for gnome-menus (3.36.0-1ubuntu3) ...
Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.26+mint3+victoria) ...
Processing triggers for mailcap (3.70+nmu1ubuntu1) ...
Processing triggers for shared-mime-info (2.1-2) ...
Processing triggers for man-db (2.10.2-1) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
So I will install those and try again.

edit: that fixed it

As a matter of interest midigark, did you install fpc-laz_3.2.2-210709_amd64.deb and fpc-src_3.2.2-210709_amd64.deb first or, at least simultaneously with the lazarus-project_3.2.0-0_amd64.deb package ?

As per the instructions -

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install ./fpc_something.deb ./fpc-src_something.deb ./lazarus-something.deb
I ask because what you show sure looks like you tried to install just lazarus-project_3.2.0-0_amd64.deb

Opening the lazarus package with (the GUI) gdebi before you have installed fpc and fpc-src will most certainly fail. dpkg too does not resolve dependencies. Thats why the instructions say use apt.

I'll give you the link to a video on YouTube on how to install it on Ubuntu 22.04. The method is the same for Linux Mint. I'm sure it can help you
