There error means Chimera cannot find a graphics driver on your system (I guess you are on Linux). Almost everyone runs 64-bit Linux now, not 32-bit so maybe the problem would be resolved if you use 64-bit Chimera. We recommend 64-bit versions for all users. If it still doesn’t work, the trick is to install a graphics driver on your computer, which can be Mesa.
