    Thanks @dnaldoog for your config!

    Btw my `XAMPP.desktop` looks like this:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    StartupWMClass=osxmanager
    Terminal=false
    Icon[en_US]=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico
    Name[en_US]=XAMPP
    Exec=pkexec /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
    I have got it working in my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with unity desktop launcher. Please change Exec assignement with following:

    Code:
    Exec=sh -c "pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY sudo /opt/lampp/manager-linux-x64.run"
    The solution i found is in the link here.

    Hope it helps
