Newcomer here.
Seems stupid, but I had a hard time in simply starting Lazarus -- on Ubuntu. When I typed "lazarus", I got an error message about a lazarus program from another package. Finally thought at the "Application" menu, which I else never use. Then, copying the launcher to the desktop I could see its properties, mainly that the command is "startlazarus".
So, added the following note to the Lazarus tutorial and the installation page, on the wiki:

Note: on Linux Ubuntu at least, the command to start Lazarus from a console is "startlazarus". Else, if you installed it from a Debian package, you should have a Lazarus menu entry under Application/Programming. 
(Issue: there is an ambiguity with a program also called "lazarus" from a "tct" package available for Ubuntu).

Hope this helps new newcomers ;-)
