To automate the installation, you can put the answers to the installer 
questions in a file and redirect stdin to be from that file.

If you want to get trickier, you can treat the Linux installer as a zip 
archive, and extract the installation tree "chimera.bin". Then you unzip 
the installation tree where you want Chimera installed.  After that you 
should pre-compile all of the python files, put a symbolic link that is 
on the standard path to CHIMERA/bin/chimera (where CHIMERA is the 
directory you installed Chimera to).  Next, for the regular version of 
Chimera (ie., not the OSMESA version), you would run 
"CHIMERA/bin/xdg-setup install" to install Chimera into the system's 
desktop applications menu. Later, a user can run "CHIMERA/bin/xdg-setup 
install" to get a desktop icon.
