Free Pascal 3.0 with Lazarus

This guide will assist users in obtaining Free Pascal 3.0 Lazarus. It currently has sections for Microsoft Windows and Linux, and Macintosh.

Installation

The quickest and most straight forward way to setup Free Pascal 3.0 with Lazarus is to use an automated installer. These automated installers will not interfere with other development envrionments you might already have on your computer.

Windows

To install: Download and run the Free Pascal 3.0 with Lazarus installer.

This installer is built using Inno Setup. If you would like to build your own Windows installer, the inno setup script project is available on github here.

Windows Installer Notes

  • The setup program is currently not signed by an authority
  • It will therefore say publisher unknown, which is normal

Linux

To install: Open a terminal and type:

curl -L http://www.getlazarus.org/download/?platform=linux -o setup.sh
sh setup.sh

The Linux installer is a shell script which builds Free Pascal 3.0 with Lazarus on Linux. If you would like to view or suggest changes to the script, it's available on github here.

Linux Installer Notes

  • The install folder defaults to $HOME/Development/FreePascal
  • You can easily change this by editing the install script

Macintosh

To install: Open a terminal and type:

curl -L http://www.getlazarus.org/download/?platform=macintosh -o setup.sh
sh setup.sh

The Macintosh installer is a shell script which step you through setting up Free Pascal 3.0 with Lazarus on Macintosh. It will automatically setup tools, such as xcode, which are needed when developing for Macintosh. If you would like to view or suggest changes to the script, it's [available on github here](https://github.com/syscurl http://www.getlazarus.org/download/?platform=macintoshrpl/Codebot.Setup/blob/master/macintosh/install.fpc-3.0.darwin.sh).
