Thanks for the kind reply.
Sorry about the typo.
The environment variables of the system seem fine to me. I also tried
calling Chimera from the same directory as the script and its working
However, calling the chimera script using "python sample.py" doesn't work
and using absolute path to chimera didn't help too.
I tried installing pychimera, but end up with the same kind of error when I
try pychimera -i
ImportError: No module named pychimera
Couldn't understand what's going on with these import modules.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions to solve this.
