Dear Greg,

I have tried debugging Chimera and the issue is related to OpenGL;

sufian at system01:~> chimera --debug
  initializing general preferences
  loading Tix
  initializing graphics
  create application
  loading Pmw
  creating main window
  creating menus
  creating toolbar
  creating viewer
  initializing OpenGL
  X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
    Major opcode of failed request:  72 (X_PutImage)
    Resource id in failed request:  0x4000064
    Serial number of failed request:  2678
    Current serial number in output stream:  2682

Then I checked for PCI as per your mentioned command;

sufian at system01:~ # lspci | grep VGA
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Electronics Systems Ltd. MGA G200EV

I checked yast2 for any driver update, and it was up to date. I don't want to switch to OpenSUSE 13.2 for now. 
Is there any earlier version of Chimera specific to my VGA ? I have also tried Chimera 1.8, but got same error.

Kindly guide me.

    Try running "chimera --debug", it should give a clue where in the
    initialization process chimera died.  That said, it is most likely a
    graphics driver bug.  Run "lspci | grep VGA" to see what kind of
    graphics card you have.  Then, if OpenSUSE has a tool or package for
    that graphics card, install it.  If not, if you have ATI/AMD or
    NVIDIA graphics, you will download the right driver from amd.com or
    nvidia.com, respectively, and install it.  If you have Intel
    graphics, upgrade your system to OpenSUSE 13.2.

    

        Best of luck and please let me know if updating the graphics
    driver fixes the bug,

    

        Greg

        Dear all Chimera users,

            

            I tried to install following version of Chimera;

             
                  chimera-1.10.1-linux_x86_64.bin

            

            but after installation, following error appeared after its
            execution;

            sufian at system01:/usr/local/chimera/bin>
                  ./chimera

            I also tried to install Chimera 1.9, but got same error. My
            system specifications are;

              Processor: x86_64 

              Operating-system: GNU/Linux (OpenSUSE 12.1)

              Kernel: Linux 3.4.63-2.44-desktop

            

            Kindly guide me how to resolve this issue.

            

            Regards.
