Solution:1

The primary answer didn't work for me until I did something from followed of this example which states:

I believe that you want to add a GUI xampp control panel. To add a GUI xampp control panel see below.

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop  

When the text editor opens simply paste the following, close and save.

[Desktop Entry]  Comment=Start and Stop XAMPP  Name=XAMPP Control Panel  Exec=sudo -i python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py  Icon=/usr/share/icons/Humanity/devices/24/network-wired.svg  Encoding=UTF-8  Terminal=false  Name=XAMPP Control Panel  Comment=Start and Stop XAMPP  Type=Application  Icon=/usr/share/icons/Humanity/devices/24/network-wired.svg  

If you have a problem with executing the program, install gksu, and in the forth line, replace sudo -i with gksudo. Below is how to

install gksu if not installed, since it has been removed from 13.04.

sudo apt-get install gksu  

Look for xampp control panel in dash

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and Xampp 5.6.3.Then I was able to use what the primary answerer posted. This is the code quote from Kyusuf Muhammad:

You can use the command below if you use 32 system :

sudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux.run  

if you use 64 system:

sudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run  


Solution:2

You can use the command below

if you use 32 system :

sudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux.run  

if you use 64 system :

sudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run  


Solution:3

Two important notes to the advice given by @HelpNeeder: there should be a quote around the code the executable, and the image for the default icon for Xampp icon is accessible as /opt/lampp/htdocs/dashboard/images/xampp-logo.svg. Copy it into folder /usr/share/icons/Humanity/devices/24/

Thus, the final advice is to open a new terminal, run

sudo gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop

and save the following in the file:

[Desktop Entry]  Comment=Start and Stop XAMPP  Name=XAMPP Control Panel  Exec=gksudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run  Icon="/usr/share/icons/Humanity/devices/24/xampp-logo.svg"  Encoding=UTF-8  Terminal=false  Name=XAMPP Control Panel  Comment=Start and Stop XAMPP  Type=Application  


Solution:4

This works for me:

gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop

[Desktop Entry]  Name=XAMPP Control Panel  Comment=Start and Stop XAMPP  Type=Application  Categories=Development  Exec=gksudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run  Icon=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico  

You have to install the package gksu.


Solution:5

The fastest way to spit out the GUI is to use the following codes. One after the other.

cd /opt/lampp  sudo ./manager-linux.run (or manager-linux-x64.run)  

Snapshot of the terminal
