Hi I'm having problems getting the XAMPP control panel to start!
I'm using ubuntu 8.10 I go to a terminal window and type "sudo /opt/lampp/lampp panel"
and get this
Code: Select all
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "xampp-control-panel.py", line 21, in <module>
    import gtk
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 48, in <module>
    from gtk import _gtk
ImportError: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Select_Size

I even didnt know that there IS ANY control panel. Simply dont use it if it does not work.

Its by far easier to start and stop Xampp by "/opt/lampp/lampp start" and "/opt/lampp/lampp stop" commands.

To use the sweet gtk/python control panel:

Run in a terminal:
Code:

Code: Select all
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop


Paste the following into the open file and save and exit.
Code:

Code: Select all
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Start/Stop XAMPP
Name=XAMPP Control Panel
Exec=gksudo "python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py"
Icon[en_CA]=/usr/share/icons/Tango/scalable/devices/network-wired.svg
Encoding=UTF-8
Terminal=false
Name[en_CA]=XAMPP Control Panel
Comment[en_CA]=Start/Stop XAMPP
Type=Application
Icon=/usr/share/icons/Tango/scalable/devices/network-wired.svg


"XAMPP Control Panel" will show up in your applications menu under Internet. Use the Alacarte Menu Editor to move it around.
