no launcher created after installation on kubuntu 15.10

Hi,
yesterday evening i install xampp on Kubuntu 15.10 and it worked great.

This morning i want to move Xampp launcher to my taskbar to make it more userfriendly for me, however i was very surprise to discover that no icon/shortcut launcher has been created by the installation.

i can run the ctlscript.sh in commandline but i can not run any other like xampp or lamp links. Why ?

i must in command line do a sudo ./manager-linux-x64.run to launch the gui part. why is not running under current user ? how to do a working launcher with that part ?

thx

Because Apache, MySQL need Superuser permissions for start up.

Build your own launcher (thats a plain linux question, if in doubt, ask in a linux forum). Instead of the graphical manager i recommend using the "lampp" start script. The syntax is the same as the services from /etc/init.d, so you can create a service for Xampp which automatically starts and stops when booting or shutting down your linux.

Return to XAMPP for Linux
