I installed lastest chimera build (1.3.2576) on 32-bit linux platform.
When I ran chimera I got for following error message
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/sciencetools/chimera/share/__main__.py", line 65, in <module>
value = chimeraInit.init(sys.argv)
File "/opt/sciencetools/chimera/share/chimeraInit.py", line 361, in init
tkgui.initializeGUI(exitonquit, debug_opengl)
File "/opt/sciencetools/chimera/share/chimera/tkgui.py", line 2520, in
master.tk.call('tix', 'initstyle')
_tkinter.TclError: expected integer but got "9.5"

Can anyone help me out?

I opened the tkgui.py file and comment line 2520:
master.tk.call('tix', 'initstyle')
Chimera start without the error and seems usable, But I am not sure if
this is appropriate.
