[Lazarus] How to deploy fpc/lazarus programs on Linux?
Posting again since I think that by selection of subject was not wise
the fisrt time, using words that might trigger scanners...
My post did not come through.
I am wondering how exactly I should package the program I am
developing for Raspberry Pi so it can be uniformly installed and
uninstalled on Raspberry Pi units...
The program is an Arm binary for RPi3 or Rpi4 type units running
So I could stuff the binary into /usr/bin I suppose, but it also needs
a config file (below /etc, right?) and some data files which go into a
new directory tree somewhere (where?).
The dir (which needs to be created) shall be populated with some
example files and such.
And this is a pure command line application meant to be run from cron
or possibly as a service. Not sure yet.
On Windows for my previous Delphi applications I used InnoSetup but
that is not valid on Linux of course.
My aim is to get a way to install which will help the production and
service people when we move away from using Windows PC as a platform
Needless to say I am not so familiar with everyday use/maintenance of
Linux computers. I have only used RPi boxes for dev work (fpc/lazarus)
and experimentation so far....
Or should I simply write some FPC command line utility to do the job?
Or maybe an install shellscript and put that into a tgz file?
