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.
