I have downloaded *.deb files from Lazarus homepage and used

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

in Lazarus folder. It did install, but couldn't run due to error saying:

No Lazarus executable in usr/lib/lazarus/0.9.30.2/lazarus

So I removed it, and tried to install Lazarus from software manager and with

sudo apt-get install lazarus

Both with no success. I get following error (translating to english):

lazarus: requires: lazarus-ide (>=0.9.28.2-8ubuntu1)
E: Packages are damaged

What should I do?

Thanks in advance, Regards

I found a workaround for the first problem:

No Lazarus executable in usr/lib/lazarus/0.9.30.2/lazarus

Install Lazarus from website (sourceforge.net download site), I also installed fpc.

Go to

usr/lib/lazarus/0.30.2

and run file

lazarus-gtk2

instead of

startlazarus.

IDE runs without problem.

PS.: sysinfo - Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 x64

EDIT:

However after that, apt-get stopped working due to unresolved dependencies. So really I had to remove this version of Lazarus. I had huge issues with installing Lazarus from USC, finally aptitude instead of apt-get managed to install it, but it worked improperly. Due to some error I lost my ethernet connection. After restoring my ethernet connection I uninstalled Lazarus using aptitude and installed it from USC and now it works fine :]
