To automatize this kind of run series, I think (personal opinion,
others might differ) that it is better to create a little shell
script. The %CalculationMode block feature is apparently very useful
for the people doing transport calculations (still quite a
experimental feature of octopus), but I doubt that it is so useful in
In any case, if you want to do a casida calculation, it has nothing to
do with the axis, and with the TDPolarizationDirection. There are no
td runs in casida mode. You have to decide if you want to do linear
response calculations in casida mode, or in td mode, and in this last
case you can worry about the axis (and no need to put an "unocc"
