[Chimera-users] installation of headless chimera

So everyone knows, the headless version of chimera does not provide a 
visible graphics window.  It is designed to run chimera and Python 
scripts and export data or save images, and is usually installed for use 
by web servers.  So if you are new to chimera, it is the wrong version 
to use.

So I'd recommend downloading and installing the chimera 1.5.3 release 
candidate (the actual release should be out within a day, so if you can 
wait a day, do so).  The Linux installer needs to be make executable 
(chmod +x installer.bin) and run in a Terminal window.  When the 
installer pauses for input, you will see that it has filled out the 
answer for you with a default value.  If you don't like that value,
use your normal terminal line editing to change it (ie., use DEL to 
delete a character, ^U to delete the line, etc.).
