I guess you mean Raspbian Buster then?

I have FPC/Lazarus on several of my RPi units ranging from RPi2B via
RPi3B to RPi4B.

I have had no problems installing release versions FPC 3.0.4 + Lazarus
2.0.6 from sources obtained by SVN checkout.
I am using an old and trusted install script I wrote several years ago
and it "just works" to get the basic stuff installed.

It does so to /home/pi/dev/... in order to not mess with anything in
/usr/... etc.

Also I use pcp directories for every install I have, right now 2.0.2,
2.0.4 and 2.0.6 on my latest RPi4B.

Concerning the small screen:
I run my systems via VNC from my big screen Windows PC and the only
glitch I have had so far is that the Lazarus IDE may suddenly crash
But this has not happened once since I installed AutoSave in Lazarus
via OnLine Package Manager, so this is for sure something I recommend
using (plus of course subversion for project sources).
