The lack of a valid povray.conf file should not stop a render.
If you get version information povray is running. Then try:
This should render a blank screen and create a blamk void.png file.
I think problem you have is with the spaces in the long file path/name.
In v3.6/v3.7/v3.8 the unix/linux space handling is messed up(a) in a way
which requires weird specifications where spaces are involved.
It should be for v3.7/v3.8 the following works:
touch 'void void.pov'
povray +i \""void void.pov"\"
so long as you otherwise get the file path and name right.
(a) - This oddness is fixed in my povr branch so either of the following
more usual file specifications with spaces work:
povr +i"void void.pov"
povr +ivoid\ void.pov
