[Pw_forum] Problem in Finding x.kpath file in pwtools

I think that kpoints.x in pwtools does a different thing. It generates a regular b1 x n2 x n3 grid of k-points (reduced by the symmetry of the Bravais lattice) which can be used to sample the BZ. It is not meant to generate a path in k-space (i.e. a sequence of points that can be used to plot a band structure).
