So now I have found a package in OnLinePackageManager that will hose Lazarus if

Up until installing that I was fine, but now Lazarus won't start....

The Initial image is shown for 3 seconds and then disappears.
Then nothing...

What can I do to get into Lazarus and remove the BGRABitmap?

Or is there somewhere a file or such I can edit and then rebuild the IDE from
the command line?

This is on Linux (Raspberry Pi  OS).
