Many of the scripts need to import one or more Python classes or Python functions that are contained within the StructBio package:
You should download the zip file and decompress the contents to get the StructBio folder. You should then copy the StructBio folder to a place where it can be found by the script. Do one of following:
The StructBio folder can be placed in the same folder as the script doing the import.
Since you will likely have several folders with scripts that import these classes and functions it is usually more convenient to move the StructBio folder to the share folder within the Chimera folder. In a Windows system you will typically find the Chimera folder within the Program Files folder on the C-drive.
