I'm hardly an authority on the subject and my knowledge of density
functional theory is dated...but in the interest of trying to be helpful:
if they are still using Kohn-Sham equations and if he is just concerned
with calculating the coefficients of the atomic orbitals and the energies
of these orbitals, then he could he either write a program himself to do
the iterative calculations or there is also some Linux software (not all
free) which claim they can do that for you: CP2K, demon2k, Atomistix
ToolKit to name a few. This is to say nothing of generalized gradient
approximation (GGA). As far a visualization is concerned, you're on your
own sorry.
