Thanks a lot, Jorge
I would suggest to shoot directly C14 ions with the commands
/gps/ene/type Mono /gps/ene/mono 0. MeV
/gps/particle ion /gps/ion 6 14 /grdm/fBeta 1
/tracking/verbose 1 /run/beamOn 1
If you really need to shoot the electrons, please be aware that the GPS interface has slightly changed in the new GPS version. As an example, the histpoint commands has now become /gps/hist/point
The second argument of /gps/hist/point has different meanings depending on the type of distribution you are defining. You can find detailed information specific to GPS on the web site
