Dear  PWSCF user's,

I am new user of PWSCF and I have 2 questions :

1- I am trying to run some examples under the graphical interface of 
PWSCF, but I have the following error message "

can't read "::pwscf::settings(CHDENS)": no such element in array
can't read "::pwscf::settings(CHDENS)": no such element in array
    while executing
"::tclu::newset run(CHDENS,$moduleObj)      $::pwscf::settings(CHDENS)"
    (procedure "_init" line 16)
    invoked from within
"_init $guiObj"
    (procedure "::pwscf::run::run" line 7)
    invoked from within
"::pwscf::run::run ::gUI0"
    invoked from within
".gui0.shellchildsite.menubar.menubar.run.menu invoke active"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke active]"
    (procedure "tk::MenuInvoke" line 47)
    invoked from within
"tk::MenuInvoke .gui0.shellchildsite.menubar.menubar.run.menu 1"
    (command bound to event

*2. *I a searching for the user guide related to the graphical interface 
of PWSCF : TK4GUIPWscf. Where I can find it, please?
