[Chimera-users] configuring stereoscopic view in RHEL-7.x

You don't say what you did for Coot, but it should be possible to setup 
3D stereo in a way that works for both Chimera and Coot.

For the best 3D stereo, Chimera depends on the graphics driver being 
configured to support quad-buffered OpenGL stereo.  For NVIDIA graphics 
cards on Linux, carefully read the installation nodes.  On Ubuntu, you 
would run:

     xdg-open /usr/share/doc/nvidia*/html/index.html

to see the installation nodes.  In might be in a different location on 
RHEL.  And if might be a README file instead of HTML files.

Read the installation notes carefully and do what it says :-).  In 
particular, look at Appendix B, X Config Options, and the Stereo 
option.  You might need to create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file using 
nvidia-xconfig so you can edit it and add a line for the Stereo option.

I don't see any conflict between what I just said and Coot's 
instructions at 
http://strucbio.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/ccp4wiki/index.php/Stereo, so I 
hope seeing it a second time in a different way helps.

     Good luck,
