Dear Mishra,
I am agree with Stefano sir. You can proceed as
1. If your installation is successful and you got the result folder after
the ./run_example job.
2. To run pw.x indivisually, just have a check if your pw.x is in bin
folder, try wth ./pw.x <rootname.in> rootname.out. If still some error,
try with ../pw.x <rootname.in> rootname.out provided your .in file is in
QE folder and pw.x is in bin folder.
