[Lazarus] Lazarus directory settings

Second stupid question: Under options I can set the default Lazarus
directory. Is there a setting somewhere for default ppu (or unit source)
directory? I get an error when trying to install a new component (unrelated
to lazreport):
lazarus.pp(1,1) Fatal: Cannot find lazreport used by Lazarus.

However, I already compiled and installed the lazreport component (And can
see it on a tab among the other controls). My only guess is that the ppu
file was not created because of a permissions issue? Or else I need to set
the default directory for linking installed units somewhere?

Thanks again,
