Actually, even if you could accept the POV-Ray license in nogui mode, the 
copy command (and the new export command) still won't work.  This 
limitation is bug 3678 and fixing it requires a rewrite of the chimera 

That said, we have an experimental version of chimera, that is always in 
nogui mode, where the copy command does work.  You can get from the 
chimera daily builds web page and it is the "Linux 64-bit Off-screen 
OpenGL" version, but get it tomorrow because I've fixed it so it will ask 
for the POV-Ray license in nogui mode (and fixed a few other nogui mode 
bugs too).  Of course, if you don't need raytracing, a regular copy works 

We are planning to have a 32-bit linux version as well as the 64-bit 
version in the daily builds sometime soon.  Other platforms are unlikely 
unless there is enough demand.

Attached is the output from the following chimera command script and the 
experimental version of chimera:

 	windowsize 640 480
 	open 3fx2
 	preset apply int 3
 	turn y 180
 	focus ligand
 	copy file 3fx2 png raytrace

Hope this helps,
