Different LCL bindings have their own bugs, and so do the underlying
libraries GTK2, QT5 etc.
LCL-QT5 and LCL-GTK2 both have bugs but LCL-QT5 has less of them. The
underlying QT5 is also less buggy than the old GTK2.

I agree with Michael. You need GTK2 development libraries initially when
building Lazarus from sources with "make".
LCL-QT5 bindings require the libQT5Pas (IIRC) which must be installed
manually in some systems. Manjaro + KDE has it nicely as a dependency.
Once you have them both installed you can freely select your favorite
