-This command is supposed to open a window with the plot on your local machine. But this works only if you have setup the X11-Forwarding as described at the beginning of the lecture. Should this not work, then your best chance is to install the ''​phonopy''​ and ''​cp2k-tools''​ package on your local machine and run the last command on your local machine after having transferred all files in the current project folder to your local machine.

 Compare the generated plot to plots usually found in literature. Which special points have been specified in the above command? Change them to plot the path $\Gamma-X-K-\Gamma-L$ instead. Compare the generated plot to plots usually found in literature. Which special points have been specified in the above command?
