Hi Janusz,
	Chimera has its own self-contained Python environment, so in order to install these packages so that you can use them from within Chimera you will need to use Chimera's Python whenever the installation procedure for a package calls on you to execute a Python script.   For a script with no arguments that would be:

	chimera --nogui installation-script.py

and for scripts with arguments:

	chimera --nogui --script "installation-script.py argument1 argument2 ..."

On non-Mac platforms you can find the chimera executable in:

	<your chimera installation>/bin

On Macs it is in:


	While the 1.5 version of Chimera is nice enough, I would encourage you to upgrade to the 1.7 release candidate, which has many improvements.
