"The package "leakview" is installed, but no valid package file (.lpk) was found" error solved when installing lazarus on Ubuntu 14.04

Create a file in /usr/lib/lazarus/1.0.10/packager/globallinks named leakview.lpk.

 Write these lines on that file..

  (less then)/Package(greater than)
(less then)/CONFIG(greater than)

The xml file is modified ,The "<" symbol replaced by less then and ">" is replaced by greater than

However the xml file is at

Then go the /usr/lib/lazarus/1.0.10/packager/globallinks directory and chek if there is a file called,open the file in nano and see if this line is there


restart lazarus and you are done
