I have installed Lazarus on a Raspberry Pi4B running bookworm 64 bit operating
I first tried to use fpcupdeluxe to do it but it fails miesrably with a linker
error when building fpc.
So then I decided to try the following:
1) Use apt install fpc to getb the latest 3.2.2 compiler installed.
2) Retrieve the Lazarus 2.2.6 sources from GitLab
3) Then run the make clean && make bigide inside the Lazarus source dir
4) Finally create the $HOME/.local/share/applications/lazarus_2.2.6.desktop
This succeeded and after I had created the desktop file for Lazarus in step 4 it
appeared in the RPi4 main menu under Programming.
But when I started it it complains about not finding fppkg.cfg and sure enough
there is no such file to be found, at least not in the locations I have seen
So apparently it has not been created or is in some obscure loication not known
My Lazarus resides in $HOME/devtools/lazarus/2.2.6 and fpc has been placed in
But I cannot find a file named fppkgh.cfg whereever I look...
What to do now?
Lazarus runs and I can add IDE packages and rebuild Lazarus just fine but
whenever it starts up it shows the dialog requesting the location of
Developer in Sweden
