[Chimera-users] CUDA on Mac OSX 10.14 Mojave

Dear All

I just learned (after updating) that nVidia CUDA support is not in place for the latest Mac OS X release. 
I have a 2010 Mac Pro with a Quadro 4000 card in - which is still fine as a desktop.

Chimera throws an error now - complaining about the graphics settings being incorrect:
"Display misconfiguration.  Please increase the color quality (24 bit color or greater), update your display (graphics) driver, and/or upgrade your graphics card.  Also see chimera installation instructions."
Presumably because the graphics driver is not working correctly.

Has anyone succeeded in resolving this? Or do I need to roll back to 10.13? A quick scan of the Mac/nVidia Forums suggests that CUDA support may not be forthcoming anytime soon, but I thought I would check if anyone has resolved this before going through the hassle of downgrading.
