This confirms that the bug with the graphics driver. Start the
"Software & Updates" tool in "System Settings", then switch to the
"Additional Drivers" tab, and wait, and wait, and wait until it gives
you a bunch of choices. Then choose "Using Video driver for the AMD
graphics accelerators from fglrx (proprietary)", and click the "Apply
Changes" button. And then reboot your computer and try Chimera again.
For a simple test, install the mesa-utils package and run the glxgears
program instead of Chimera.
