[Chimera-users] Command line problem

Hi Luca,

  I just tried Chimera 1.10.1 with Mac OS 10.10.2 and had no trouble with the command-line.  I notice though that your Chimera build 40415 is not the Chimera 1.10.1 production version which has build number 40427.  I think it is unlikely that your Chimrea 1.10.1 release candidate is different in a way that effects this bug but you should try the actual 1.10.1 release.

  My only guess is that your Chimera preferences file is somehow messing things up.  You might try renaming the preferences file so Chimera starts with a new one to see if that fixes it.  Your preferences file is


so a terminal command to rename it is

	mv ~/.chimera/preferences ~/.chimera/preferences.keep

then start Chimera to see if that solves the problem.

  To report bugs such as this use Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug… so we get more info about your system and Chimera version.

Or rather, I can type in it, because if I hit return the command gets executed, but I can’t see what I type. Any idea of what’s going on?
