Assuming that Bo's running Raspbian and going back to my notes, I think 
that the default desktop (window manager) is OpenBox with KXDE as an 
alternative. Frankly, I found both to have issues and prefer running 
pukka Debian with KDE, although it's unclear whether the RPi will ever 
be a fully-supported target.

When I last tried the combination, Lazarus and Debian "Jessie" were 
uneasy companions on all platforms. I strongly suggest trying Qt as an 
alternative target.
