Ubuntu's Lazarus package is faulty. Just get the sources directly from
Subversion server and build them.

 svn co https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/branches/fixes_2_0/ lazarus_2_0
 cd lazarus_2_0

As an extra bonus you will get latest bug fixes in future by running "svn up".
My prediction is that you will ignore this advice and start to bang
your head with .deb packages like many others do. The forum is full of
threads by those people.
