    follow Joomla install documentation.

    it's preety easy to do it, once you initiate install on your server.

    I wouldn't have asked if it was easy for me.

    The relase notes:

    Talks only about windows:
    http://docs.joomla.org/Use_Joomla!_on_your_own_computer

    XAMPP is already installed.

    I found Ubuntu wiki - referring to Ubuntu 6. I am using 12

    btw: why do you use XAMPP?
    You could also opt for installing Apache/PHP/mySQL and phpMyAdmin manually: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP

    The only difficulty I had was with permissions/ownership (Joomla's directories where not writable by Joomla/Apache).
    I solved it by running Apache under my user account:

    (btw: don't do it like that on production servers that are publicly available through the internet)

    I was looking at the documentation and they mentioned XAMPP is the replacement for LAMP - just a naming change for upgraded tool. That was my understanding.

    I don't mind uninstalling and use LAMP instead. Is that what will make it easier? I have no crucial data, so I don't mind any idea, that will bring me to a fast, out of the box, working environment.

    I have to mention that after suffering with Joomla installation on Ubuntu, and later on with Eclipse, I tried working on Win7. After less than 1 hour I had XAMPP and netBeans working - out of the box. I still prefer Ubuntu, but this is frustrating.

    Many steps... but I can give it a try.
    Will it work if I do it with current XAMPP installation? i.e. will this procedure overide the current, or should I remove XAMPP? (how)?

    I recently installed Joomla 2.5 on a LAMP installation on Ubuntu 12.04. Dead simple stuff. You may just want to go that route. Here's a great guide to installing LAMP on 12.04. Once apache is running and you put Joomla in var/www/ and give ownership of that directory to www-data...you just run the install.
