If I launch "%povray --preview text pacman.ini" in command line I have :
povray: cannot open the user configuration file 
/Users/admin/.povray/3.7/povray.conf: No such file or directory

Problem with option setting
povray --preview text pacman.ini
Failed to parse command-line option
That doesn't work. Do you have an advice ?
