After you installed XAMPP , you must start the service from terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) by command
$ sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
but how if we want to start it from GUI ?
so this is the command
$ sudo gedit ~/.local/share/applications/xampp-control-panel.desktop
When the text editor open, paste the following code bellow
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon[en_US]=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico
Name[en_US]=XAMPP
Exec=gksu /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run
Comment[en_US]=Start XAMPP Control Panel
Name=XAMPP
Comment=Start XAMPP Control Panel
Icon=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico
Save and close, then you can open XAMPP from app launcher now

*sorry for my bad english

I'm currently working on a shell script, that will do everything you need for XAMPP. Download the architecture specific version, launch it, create an autorun script and a desktop entry for it in ~/.local/share/applications. I'll upload it to somewhere after I've finished it.
And one more thing: launching a GUI application using sudo is not recommended, use gksu instead. If there's no gksu then install it with sudo apt-get install gksu -y.
