[CP2K:7028] Density of States for water molecular orbital

CP2K does not use orbital symmetry (or any other molecular/crystal
symmetry), so you will not be able to perform PDOS or other population
analysis for MOs with the symmetry labels you mentioned. Alternatively, if
you know the shape and positions (e.g. HOMO, LUMO, etc) of these orbitals,
you may visualise the MOs and manually assign symmetry labels for MOs from
CP2K calculations. You may have several MOs with nearly degenerate
eigenvalues, these will correspond to one of the MOs you mentioned with a
symmerty label.
