I'm almost sure that this problem has been reported here... but  
couldn't find anything about it.
When I try to ray-trace [Chimera 1.3 build 2572 (Darwin/aqua)] I  
consistently get this error:

File Context (5 lines):
   object {
    text {
     ttf "verdana.ttf" "$" 0.01, 0
Parse Error: Cannot open font file.

It appears even if I have no labels on the image.
I managed to solve the problem but only when I asked for the povray  
intermediate files not to be deleted and then manually edit them:

A) image.ini file:

I changed the line:




B) image.pov file:

All calls to verdana.ttf were changed to FreeSans.ttf

It would be great if you point me to an easier solution or if you  
could make such changes in the code.
