You can search for contacts using a profile from the Joomla front end, and permit mapping, but the map is very narrow, and you can't search for counties.

Inspecting the page with a debugger shows that the code is expecting to see files under the civicrm folder which is not in the front end components/com_civicrm folder.

This is caused because the system expects to find css and other files under the civicrm folder. This folder does not exist in [joomla root]/components/com_civicrm. You can solve this by creating a symlink as follows: cd [joomla root]/components/com_civicrm

ln -s [joomla root]/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm civicrm

I suppose it is possible the code will be changed so this is unnecessary or the installation process will create the symlink if it is not needed.
