[Chimera-users] less color depth possible?

Hi Tat,

  Chimera has no controls for color depth.  I guess its OpenGL rendering asks for 8-bit color depth for the OpenGL context.  What error does Chimera give?  Using less than 8-bit color depth for visualization is absurd.  X2Go must be able to do 24.
