Hello, Mattias,

maybe (am not sure) in a first attempt  I had installed and deinstalled 
Lazarus 1.6, which  is offered by this distro. Later when I tried to 
install RC3, GDebi told me, there was an package conflict with fpc. I 
did  sudo apt-get purge fpc and then sudo apt-get autoremove. Now RC3 
could be installed.

Following your advice, I removed the ~/.lazarus directory of the default 
user, and the problem was gone.
