[Chimera-users] combine models

chimerax furnished me, from the mmCIF file, a clean, complete pdb, a task
that all software that I tried could not do correctly (i.e., not all
proteins were extracted from the mmCIF file).
The pdb could not be opened with chimera (for the reasons you said, I
suppose), but opened with either Jmol or vmd.
With the latter, I cut a sphere of 30A around the "small molecule" of my
interest and with this sphere.pdb I went back to chimera
to visualize (all OK).
The longest part was installing chimerax on Debian amd64, but finally it
succeeded by, step by step, installing what was lacking in the system, and
changing to a desktop because the vintage VAIO has a too old graphic card
not accepting OpenGL graphics 3.3.
Thanks a lot
