After I start Xampp on my Ubuntu 12.04 I go to the localhost and I come to the site, where all languages are listed .... when I click any of these languages nothing happens.

Follow steps are already done:

I started Xampp with:

sudo /opt/lamp/lamp start

after doing so, I get in the console, that everything is running:

Starting XAMPP for Linux ...

XAMPP: Starting Apache...ok.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL... ok.
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...ok.

Can you please help me solve this problem?

Long time ago...

Maybe try:

chown USERNAME /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/lang.tmp

for the user defined in /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf.

I hope you already solved it but for me it worked fine.
