Try running "chimera --debug", it should give a clue where in the 
initialization process chimera died.  That said, it is most likely a 
graphics driver bug.  Run "lspci | grep VGA" to see what kind of 
graphics card you have.  Then, if OpenSUSE has a tool or package for 
that graphics card, install it.  If not, if you have ATI/AMD or NVIDIA 
graphics, you will download the right driver from amd.com or nvidia.com, 
respectively, and install it.  If you have Intel graphics, upgrade your 
system to OpenSUSE 13.2.

     Best of luck and please let me know if updating the graphics driver 
fixes the bug,
