I would like to create a launcher for the XAMPP managing app. The .run file is located in /opt/lampp and can be started via terminal by typing
I'd rather like to start the manager app from the applications menu and therefore added a XAMPP.desktop file to /usr/share/applications. Content is:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=true Icon=/opt/lampp/XAMPP.png Name=XAMPP Exec=gksudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run Comment=Start XAMPP Control Panel Name=XAMPP Comment=Start XAMPP Control Panel
The tutorial at https://elementaryforums.com/index.php?threads/create-a-xampp-launcher-on-the-desktop.1265/ didn't work for me. Although there is a XAMPP link in the applications menu I can only 'add to dock' in the context menu and clicking the link makes absolutely nothing happen.
