ok... let's start over here. I think I see the problem. Do you have a folder called "xampp-control-panel" and in that folder you have a file called "xampp-control-panel"? If you do, that is where I went wrong.
If that is what you have then open a terminal and:
sudo chmod 755 /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel
Then in a terminal:
sudo cp -a /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel /usr/bin
Now... type in a terminal:
and it should run. That should also be the command to put in the launcher.
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
