Have you got the ubuntu mysql installed as well as the LAMPP one? I would stop everything and then stat LAMPP

 sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop
 sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
 sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

Just simply run this command to terminal

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop

and after that

/opt/lampp/lampp/ start

trust me this actually works on me!! 100%
