    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:
    http://www.joomla.org/announcements/...-released.html
    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

    Joomla installation guide: http://docs.joomla.org/Installation

    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.

    Re: How to install Joomla 2.5 after XAMPP

    http://docs.joomla.org/Installation

    the key here is to give ownership www-data to the directory

    then it's just http://www.yoursite.com/installation
    or more likely it will be http://localhost/ or similar.

    if you have the ownership it is easy as the installation kicks off and then you just follow instructions and do what you want to do in it. it's like installing ubuntu. mnostly user name&password, language, database name and such.

    if you still have porblems you should mention what exactly is giving you the trouble in linux. any specific error messages connected with Ubuntu?

    i followed the LAMP instruction you gave: it was easy, all worked by the guide. Thanks !
    I had a permission issue, so I used chmod 777 for all the www folder. I hope that's ok.

    Now Joomla zip file is residing within the www folder. What guide should I use to install?

    That will allow normal users to see things like database passwords.

    http://docs.joomla.org/Installation or http://docs.joomla.org/Installing_Joomla!_1.7 (1.6 + 1.7 are short term support versions for the current Long Term Support version 2.5)

    In short:
    Did you create a database using phpMyAdmin?
    If you did, unzip the Joomla 2.5.6 full package within the WWW folder.
    Use your browser to go to http://localhost/ and follow the instructions during installation.

    If the Joomla installation procedure cannot create a configuration.php in your WWW folder, just create the file yourself and copy + paste the configuration info from the last(?) step into it.

    If you have any problems installing 3rd party extensions > check the folder permissions (Site > System Information > tab "Directory Permissions").
    If they are unwritable: "chown" the files to the "Apache user" (probably www-data).

    If you have any Joomla related questions, you could visit Joomla's documentation site http://docs.joomla.org/ , or the forum at http://forum.joomla.org/
