If you downloaded chimera to your desktop, then you would need to type in
the following commands to the shell (which is the same as running them):
chmod +x chimera-1.2422-linux.exe
Then the installer program will ask you where it should install chimera.
When the installer has finished, you can put a shortcut to chimera on your
desktop with the following command:
ln -s CHIMERA/bin/chimera chimera
where CHIMERA is the directory where you installed chimera. And you can
remove the chimera installer.
Hope this helps,
