[Pw_forum] How can I get the vacuum level with HSE functional

Dear QE users,

I have used QE to calculate the Fermi level and vacuum level of a semiconductor.

Now I use the same method to calculate the vacuum level with HSE functional. (pw.x > pp.x > average.x)

However, a error emerges when pp.x.
