I don't think it is the question of ultrasoft vs norm conserving. Rather it
is which exchange correlation functional one should use.....I don't have any
experience regarding MnSe passivated with H, however only for Se I found GGA
works quite well at least for predicting structural properties
you should make sure that for all the elements you should use the same
exchange correlation functional......u can mix ultrasoft PP with a norm
