[CP2K-user] [CP2K:12004] Problems computing LUMO energy for a non-periodic metallic cluster using PM6

Try using the MO section rather than MO_CUBES...it may not work.

The semi-empirical methods do not have the full functionality of the DFT 
methods. I'd suggest trying DFT (for very small systems, but then you know 
the input works), then seeing if you can do it with PM6 or similar.
