[Chimera-users] Fetch by EMDB via GUI downloads first where before uncompressing in users downloads directory

Hi Ryan,

  Chimera file fetch uses Python urllib.urlretrieve() which says it creates a tempfile.  Where that tempfile would be is operating system dependent and is not in the Python documentation.

	https://docs.python.org/2/library/urllib.html <https://docs.python.org/2/library/urllib.html>

The tempfile is uncompressed and moved to folder ~/Downloads/Chimera/EMDB.  Python is responsible for removing up the temporary file and I assume it does that correctly.

I know when it is done it goes to my download directory, but where does the gz get downloaded to and where does the partial uncompressed file end up. I cannot find ~5-~10 GB of this lost file. It was ~5 GB gz file so I think the gz is still on my computer. I searched for it to and my computer said no results found so I am not sure if it is named something else when you fetch by EMDB.
