You need to change that folder permissions. To do so you can:
1. Type this in the terminal
sudo chown $USER:$USER /opt/lampp/htdocs/
2. Open nautilus as root (Alt+F2, gksu nautilus), go to /opt/lampp, right click htdocs folder and click properties. There's a "Permissions" tab in the dialog, and you'll be able to change the folder owner.
