I get error like this.

What am I doing wrong here? Thank you very much in advance!

You need to set the basis_relativistic keyword, which works exactly like basis. Iā€™m not familiar with the inner workings of relativistic methods, so the exact distinction between the relativistic and the non-relativistic basis is beyond me.

The error message could be a lot cleaner. Overhauling custom basis sets is on our to-do list, but not our top priority at the moment.

Oh, That fixed my problem. Thank you very much for your prompt reply. :blush:

I think basis_relativistic may be referring to the RI basis set needed for the momentum integrals for DK or X2C. So I would recommend using a completely uncontracted version of your orbital basis set for that.
