[Chimera-users] copy cmd in nogui script

I was wondering if anyone was able to run chimera 'headless' using -nogui. I
would like to be able to run the program from a script and without an X
server, or against Xvfb or equivalent if necessary. My command line is


/var/lib/chimera/bin/chimera --nogui --silent --script <scriptname>


The script that I run sets the window size, element colors, rotates the
image, and then does a copy file to save a ray traced PNG file. I have run
this without -nogui and accepted the POV Ray license agreement. Adding
-nogui results in the following output


Error while processing <scriptname>:

AttributeError: '_chimera.NoGuiViewer' object has no attribute 'x3dWrite'

(see reply log for Python traceback info)

Parse error at line 1:

 no element found


My chimera version is "chimera production version 1 build 2540 2008/07/09".
This is running on a linux machine, 2.6 kernel. Any suggestions you have
would be appreciated.
