You need an older compiler. It appears FPdebugger is not maintained at 
the moment.

There also is http://duby.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/duby/ if you are 
For bot projects, I have no idea what the state of them is.

Since you posted that in pc, not Lazarus mailing list, I do not know if 
you meant to ask about Lazarus, but since you did ask about "install"
I don't think fpdebugger can currently run inside the IDE (I didn't find 
any place where it attempts to register)
Duby, I think has some instructions how to do that.

If this is about debugging inside the Lazarus IDE.  I believe (may be 
wrong...) using gdb still gives better results than any of the two (just 
from what I read in the past).
