1. - is this a local install or on a remote server? Are you use remote SSH in some form, or a local shell command line???

2. -
/home/tea/Downloads/xampp-linux-1.7.4.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
is apparently telling you one of two possible things -
A. the file was not placed where you think it was (i.e. - it is truly missing)
B. when logged in as 'that' superuser, you can't access 'that' location.

Good Luck
