Section Mesh::KPoints
Type logical
Default no

This variable defines whether symmetries are taken into account or not for the choice of k-points. If it is set to no, the k-point sampling will range over the full Brillouin zone.

When a perturbation is applied to the system, the full symmetries of the system cannot be used. In this case you must not use symmetries or use the SymmetryBreakDir to tell Octopus the direction of the perturbation (for the moment this has to be done by hand by the user, in the future it will be automatic).
