Installing Lazarus

#1

Post by zyngalu » Thu Jul 04, 2019 10:17 pm

Hi

I managed to install Lazarus on my MXlinux system, but it was a very hit and miss installation. I just selected everything and hoped for the best.

Look at all these options. In ubuntu there are just three packages that you install in the terminal. I tried doing this in MXlinux but it didn't work

Is there a best way to install Lazarus in MXlinux that I don't know about.

Also is there a better IDE I could use for MXlinux than Lazarus.

Thank You..

If you want the Lazurus IDE, install the lazurus IDE package. Ubuntu has the same number of Lazurus packages in their repo, the software center just hides most of them. You can install gnome-software if you want the same experience in MX.

The IDE included with Python is usable and there are much more powerful tools available, such as, PyCharm, Eric, Ninja?, DrPython, come to mind. And many more.
Try some to see what you prefer.
