Hi Chanaka,

On Ubuntu, depending on your installation type, the configuration
files might be found in different places. If you copy/extract/pull
files into a folder, the phpmyadmin_dev/config.inc.php will have
priority. But if you use apt-get install phpmyadmin, the settings
declared in /etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php will be more important
than those in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php, where all the
other files are located. Or at least that's the case for my multiple
instances of phpMyAdmin ( ubuntu 11.10 ).

You did not mention trying it, so maybe you could add your pmadb,
controluser and additional settings in /etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php
instead of phpmyadmin_dev/config.inc. I'm not sure if it will work for
you, but you can try. Hope it helps.
