Summary0022298: Feature Request: Custom Package Install
Descriptionit is good to have a tried and true default installation of lazarus, but there is no way to install further packages without using root password currently. it would be a good idea to install the custom packages ie zeosdb in the .lazarus folder somewhere, so if anything goes wrong you won't need to reinstall lazarus.

thanks guys

You should not run Lazarus as root.

What error message do you get when installing a package as normal user?

hi there. i have been using lazarus in a normal user account, the issue is when you want to add packages to lazarus in a normal user account, as it always complains that it doesn't have the necessary priveledges required.

What is the exact error message?

Please open a terminal and start lazarus with the parameter --debug-log=log.txt
Then reproduce the bug and close the IDE.
Please zip and attach the log.txt.

i don't know how to install the debug packages with software management. i have tried debugging in the past, but i got nowhere with that

The --debug-log= is a command line parameter of the IDE.
No package required. Please try what I asked.

Mattias did not ask you to install the debug packages in note 60641.

What step in note 60641 don't you understand?

you can now close this, as i can see people are confused. i have sent a request to the forum under suggestions that may explain better to what i was getting at.
