You must create a "service" (let's called it "lampp") and then you need to activate it. Easiest way to do that:

1) Login as "root" (On Mint, what is Ubuntu based, enter "sudo su" in a terminal and provide your passwort)

2) Create service "lampp" (which is linked to the lampp start script). The '#' stands for the root prompt in a terminal:

Code: Select all
# ln -s /opt/lampp/lampp /etc/init.d/lampp


3) Active newly created service "lampp", so that it is started on boot and stopped on shutdown. The '#' stands for the root prompt in a terminal:

Code: Select all
# update-rc.d lampp defaults



Then reboot your machine. And then read documentation about services in linux, about /etc/init.d and so on, so that you get an understanding of what you have done know.
