I have installed Lazarus from the Ubuntu Software Center before, but yesterday I tried to install Ubuntu on my Mac and I don't see Lazarus listed.

Does anyone have a URL for the Ubuntu installation or the code that I can use to install it at the command prompt? Might I find it at https://snapcraft.io/?q=lazarus&op= ?

  • You are correct. I tried the chosen answer and it complained that it can find FPC when tried to run it. Your answer worked flawlessly...

  • Solution still works on a fresh Lubuntu install. You saved a friend of mine of a pesky commute.
