[Chimera-users] UCSF Chimera on Arm processors

Chimera does not run on ARM CPUs.  It is only available for Windows, macOS and Linux on Intel CPUs.  We don't have the resources to support other platforms.  Chimera includes about 50 third-party libraries that would need to be available on ARM to allow it to work.  The source code for Chimera is available

but it would likely take weeks of work by someone experienced in porting to the Raspberry Pi environment to see if it is possible.
