The path you are mentioning shows you are trying to connect to a non-XAMPP MySQL daemon. The path for the XAMPP provided MySQL would be /opt/lampp/var/mysqlmysql.sock.

So stop starting the non-XAMPP MySQL at boot time.

Could you let us know how you are trying to connect to MySQL? What are your connection data?
