Php – Installing Xdebug for PHP on Ubuntu with XAMPP


I'm running XAMPP 1.7.3a on Ubuntu 9.10. With Netbeans 6.7.1 as my editor, I want to be able to debug my PHP sites.

To do this, I looked up Xdebug and started following the installation instructions, found here:

Trying to compile the .tgz file, run in to a problem.

Step 3) I can execute that, but what use does it have? I don't get the output or what I should do with it.

Step 4) I execute the following command:

./configure --enable-xdebug --with-php-config=/opt/lampp/etc/

At the bottom of the output, it says: configure:

error: Cannot find php-config. Please
use –with-php-config=PATH

I've checked the location I entered, the php.ini file is there and so are all other config files.

So, I'm not sure what to do now. Should I ignore and just do the 'make' command, or does something else yet need to be done?
