[Chimera-users] listen selection command

I am trying out a REST listener for selections in Chimera and need help.

I can talk to Chimera over REST.

I can start an Http listener in Jalview - and verify it in my browser.

I have sent this command to Chimera:

listen start selection rest

Then silence. I haven't managed to provoke Chimera into sending me a SelectionChanged notification.

I am making selections in the Chimera window - as I can see by the 'Inspect Selection' panel.

I have also started Chimera standalone (no REST service) and tried the listen command in the command line, but yet to see any output on a selection.

What have I missed or how can I diagnose what I am doing wrong here?
