XAMPP Manager on the Desktop

Launching XAMPP Manager from the Ubuntu desktop

Where XAMPP provides the organization and management structure around a (L)AMP stack on the Ubuntu (13.10) workstation, XAMPP Manager provides an administrative UI to managing the stack - simple and functional.

To make launching the manager more convenient, create a launcher on the desktop.

For Ubuntu 13.10, pre-requisite packages are required:

  • Python-glade: sudo apt-get install python-glade2
  • Gksudo: sudo apt-get install gksu

Using gedit, create a file on the desktop named "xampp-manager.desktop".

Copy the following into xampp-manager.desktop (ref: bhargavg.wordpress.com):

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Xampp Manager
Comment=Manage XAMPP
Exec=gksudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run
Icon=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico
Categories=Application;Development;Web
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=0

Save and ensure xampp-manager.desktop has execute permissions.
