Dr. Giannozzi,

I checked the pslibrary and NNIN vault links. All LDA PP there for F are paw
ultrasoft. It seems there are more LDA PP in abinit website. But they are in
format. Maybe I should try my luck to convert them to PP format in QE.

there's a reason: norm-conserving F is very hard. Anyway, if you follow the
links in the pseudopotential page of the quantum espresso web site, you will
find for sure some norm-conserving LDA PP for F.
