I'm trying to install composer on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine, for Magento2 installation but the following error occurs:
Some settings on your machine make Composer unable to work properly. Make sure that you fix the issues listed below and run this script again: The json extension is missing. Install it or recompile php without --disable-json
I check that JSON is already installed through below command -
aptitude show php5-json
which shows below result -

please help to overcome with this.
