Perhaps I need some help in ruling out a cause of this problem in XAMPP. I believe mine is a standard install in /opt/lampp and I can do an ls -l of that directory which identifies the existence of the lampp script with rwx permissions for the user. In addition, I am logged in as su, so I should be able to do anything that is possible with that script. When I enter the command lampp start, I get the error, 'Command not found'.
I have never seen such behavior in the Unix/Linux operating systems before, but perhaps I am missing something very basic. Can anybody identify the problem, or even assure me that I have something really seriously wrong in my OS?
I appreciate any assistance, ideas or even condolence.
