I have elementary Loki as my OS http://cocoa.dima.unige.it/ Here is what I tried. I unzipped the file (which went well) and then typed ./configure which threw me an error that such a directory doesn't exist. Now I don't know what I should do. I found this document http://fe.math.kobe-u.ac.jp/icms2010-dvd/CoCoA/Mac/Install%20CoCoA.pdf for older version but even this doesn't work for me. So can anyone try installing it and then let me know the step by step procedure.

I found two CoCoA webpages which seem to provide some guidance:

This first gives a link to the download for CoCoA-5 and then explains the installation: http://cocoa.dima.unige.it/download/install5-unix.shtml

The next link has screenshots related to installing and setting it up: http://cocoa.dima.unige.it/download/screenshots.shtml

The only configure-like command that is referenced is ./ConfigEmacs.sh. Previous versions of CoCoA also do not mention the ./configure command.
