Known issues:
- Debian packages: the default lazarus directory is wrong. The IDE detects the right one and asks on first start. Just click Ok.
- When compiling a test application the compiler can not find project1.lrs. Workaround: save the project before compiling OR create an empty file /tmp/project1.lrs.
