ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket

Use the same configuration that you are attempting. Here is how I set it up.
mkdir /var/lib/mysql
cd /var/lib/mysql
ln -s /opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock

This will allow you to use tools such as mysql-query-browser without any hassles.

To access mysql from the command line:

/opt/lampp/bin/mysql -p
