Linux repositories compatibles with RemObjects

Sometimes is hard to have a updated version of lazarus and fpc working with remobjects version.

For this reason , im publishing and updating versions tested with remobjects latest stable release on my repos.

the stable version will be the tested with RO and the testing version will be the guarantee to compile ro packages.

Here are the instructions.

Repository Lazarus / testing FPC versions

Installation instructions:

open a console or terminal window on your ubuntu or debian based linux box.

Add the key GPG

gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 63EF10AF

Add the key to APT system:

gpg --export 63EF10AF | sudo apt-key add -

Check whether the key was built:

sudo apt-key list

Add the repository to its list of repositories

You can use synaptic or edit /etc/apt/sources.list directly. Add the line:

deb lazarus-stable universe


deb lazarus-testing universe

remember, the tested version will be the STABLE version only.

Install Lazarus

from the same console windows type

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install lazarus

that's all.

Dude, I love you guys. Whatver happens, don't let a fabulous such as Pascal die. Right now, i'm not in a position to help, but I want to contribute.

I also have an idea for a more attractive UI but I don't know what software I could use to draw it, and give you an idea of what I have in mind.
