I downgraded (at Synaptic-->Package-->force version) library libatk1.0-0 from version 1.29.31 to 1.28.0 and installed Lazarus through synaptic in 2-3 minutes!
I can't believe the solution was so simple! I thought I'd never make it!
Windows 7 32bit, Lazarus v1.8.4    FPC 3.0.4.

I think i found the problem with the fpc source files path, i installed Lazarus on ubuntu and fedora and i had some problems, every time i tried to double-click the design form i got a message about gettext.ppu, then i just found the sources in /usr/shared/fpc/2.4.0
I just copied everything inside into the path: /usr/lib/fpc/2.4.0
an got it working.

About the lazarus construction i always have to set the security in those directories and start it with sudo, that's not bad it's a little price for secure system.

Hmmm, yes. Glad you got it working, but...
Maybe a symlink (ln -s) would have worked as well?

And all this on Ubuntu 9.10? That is what the topic title says anyway?

You may copy it there, it's OK. But I'd rather change FPC source directory in environment options.

I'd even dare say it's not OK, since managed directories are not to be modified in APT based installs; that could confuse the install system and/or create problems on uninstall or upgrade. Symlinks could be tolerated though.

It should preferably be dealt with via Environment options like you suggested...
