Actually, even if you could accept the POV-Ray license in nogui mode, the
copy command (and the new export command) still won't work. This
limitation is bug 3678 and fixing it requires a rewrite of the chimera
That said, we have an experimental version of chimera, that is always in
nogui mode, where the copy command does work. You can get from the
chimera daily builds web page and it is the "Linux 64-bit Off-screen
OpenGL" version, but get it tomorrow because I've fixed it so it will ask
for the POV-Ray license in nogui mode (and fixed a few other nogui mode
bugs too). Of course, if you don't need raytracing, a regular copy works
We are planning to have a 32-bit linux version as well as the 64-bit
version in the daily builds sometime soon. Other platforms are unlikely
unless there is enough demand.
Attached is the output from the following chimera command script and the
experimental version of chimera:
windowsize 640 480
preset apply int 3
turn y 180
copy file 3fx2 png raytrace
Hope this helps,
