Since you didn't install in /opt you need to edit the ~Desktop/lampp/lampp script and tell it that it's in a non-standard location. I'm just looking at that file now in my lampp test machine and you need to find all instances of /opt/lampp and replace them with your installation location. That file could benefit from a little variable use so you don't have to make 50+ edits all over the place.

Optionally, move ~/Desktop/lampp to /opt/lampp and it'll "just work".

@CIRK: You need to install myqsl. Run sudo aptitude install mysql-client mysql-server. – Gilles Sep 17 '10 at 22:12

@Giles: LAMPP includes MySQL in the bundle. You don't need to install it as a separate package. – Ian C. Sep 17 '10 at 23:41
