(note that the manual has a chapter about the IDE with screenshots)

Go to the options->directories menu, add the entire unit path to the unitdirectory path.

Probably something like /usr/local/lib/fpc/1.0.6/units/linux/* but check this for your own
OS (maybe you have to remove "local/"), and don't forget the asterisk.
