[Solved] GUI for Xampp in Ubuntu10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)

Well here is how I managed to get Xampp Control Panel for myself in Ubuntu10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).

I knew the script to bring the GUI was

gksu /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py

Now I was stucked How do I use that. Then I thought wow ! it can be attached to main-menu. Then, I went to Main-Menu Editor.

System > Preferences  > Main Menu

From Menus List I selected Internet.

Then clicked in New Item.
And entered the following configurations.

Image :

Type : Application
Name : Xampp Control Panel
Comamnd : gksu /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py
Comment : (leave it blank)

To change the icon, I cliked on the Icon on left and then choosed the Xampp’s official logo. Then hit the Ok. Then finally Close.

And I checked, if it really worked, by going

Applications > Internet > Xampp Control Panel

when I executed the launcher, it asked me to enter my password, after I entered password, I got Xampp Control Panel.

Here you can See it.

Now, That’s it, we now can run our Webserver with just clicks.

with best regards,
