The cam you're having trouble with is loaded.
Make sure the crank is at TDC by looking at the notch.
I then sometimes "cheat" by clamping the TB to the cam sprockets with the clamps. The 3rd one is for the TB being help on the splined pulley at the crank (I also cut a hunk of old belt to put on the threads on the bottom to protect them).
The crank won't turn so easily. So now that you have all 3 places that need lined up "clamped" it gets easier.
Then personally I install the lower idler last after TB is strung.
Then release tensioner.
Them's my tips.

Put a long wrench or breaker bar with a socket on the cam sprocket bolt and use that to slowly turn the cam to position.

once you get used to it, it's actually really easy.
remove the passengers side lower timing belt idler pulley, it can be installed once the belt is in place easily and gives a little bit more play to install.
get the belt around the crank and the drivers side pulley first and have a helper or use a clamp, clothes pin, or something to hold the belt onto the cam - that will prevent it from moving out of place as you go about installing it the rest of the way around everything else.
once you get used to it, like i said, they go right on.

(though that is from a 2.2, not a 2.5 like yours)
