No, none officially exists. There is a very old one, but it is not maintained.

I believe fpc 3.0 is in debian experimental, but it would be a very bad idea to use that in linux mint.

There is a command-line installer on the ftp site for fpc, after that you should build lazarus itself.

As it happens, I am currently writing an article on how to install lazarus on Linux mint 17.3 from zero.
It does describe compiling lazarus.

I can send it to you when it is finished.
