Bundle wishlist: lazarus, mkchromecast and cairo-dock

I am new to clear linux and I totally love it. However like in all linux distros there are things missing. In my case I miss…

lazarus (and free pascal), my native development environment
cairo-dock, because it is the most beautiful dock
mkchromecast, because mirroring the screen to a TV is awesome

Update: I have compiled and installed lazarus, so now I have a native Object Pascal IDE for Clear Linux. I wish it had been available as flatpak, because it’s an awesome open source IDE

Update: Glx-Dock/Cairo-dock location(s)

[compiling and installing lazarus]

sudo -s
cd ~
wget https://netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/project/freepascal/Linux/3.0.4/fpc-3.0.4-1.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps fpc-3.0.4-1.x86_64.rpm
svn checkout http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/trunk fpc
cd fpc
make all OPT='-gl'
make install PP=compiler/ppcx64 PREFIX=/usr
ln -s /usr/lib/fpc/x.x.x/ppcx64 /usr/bin/ppcx64
make install sourceinstall PREFIX=/usr 
ln -sf /usr/share/src/x.x.x/fpc /usr/share/fpcsrc
/usr/lib/fpc/x.x.x/samplecfg /usr/lib/fpc/x.x.x /etc
cd ..
svn checkout http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/ lazarus
cd lazarus 
make clean all
make install

(if there is a version error, make sure that the symbolic links are pointing to the latest versions of fpc and ppcx)
[last move the fpc source directory to your home directory and recursively take ownership of it (the contents are needed by lazarus)]
