You'll notice there are no release packages :)  This is mainly because I 
haven't got around to trying to set up the applications on a bare system 
to work out what is missing and what an installer or install script 
needs to provide. I think you'll probably need some sample data, as I 
think some of the SQL queries will fail if they find empty tables. Just 
warning you that this could be a bit frustrating ;)

Anyway, I suspect that I know what the fpgui problems are. I have 
modified a few units to provide a little functionality that Graeme 
appeared to have started on but not completed, and also enable me to 
have a TPanel with a Borderstyle of bsNone - offhand I can't remember 
why I needed this but details of all changes (I hope) and all modified 
units are in the fpgui subdirectory of trunk. They are from fpgui-0.8: I 
have not yet had time to try fpgui-1.0 and see if they clash with any 

If you use fpgui 0.8 and overwrite the modified units with the ones from 
the FirePos repo I think it will probably compile, although you may need 
to add a few paths in Project->Options. Only the Sales Terminal module 
uses fpgui - the others use the LCL. You will need LNetbase for all modules.

It has been developed using Lazarus 1.0 and FPC 2.6.0

I hope you find it useful.
