Element 'trRosettaProtocol': This element is not expected.


I want to run the given protocol for trRosettaProtocol mover described in the website ( However, when I tried to run the Example script, I got following errors. I used the newest version of weekly release of rosetta which is rosetta_bin_linux_2021.07.61567_bundle, and compiled with tensorflow_gpu as described in the protocol. Then I run the rosetta script using the command in below. Besides, in the tutorial, there is a folder name "Rosetta/main/source/src/protocols/trRosetta" containing input files for protocol, but my downloaded version that folder is not exist. My question is that did I download the wrong version of rosetta to use trRosettaProtocol or rosetta_script is not the right command to be used for.

Thanks in advance,


My commands:

ROSETTA/main/source/bin/rosetta_scripts.tensorflow_gpu.linuxgccrelease \
-parser:protocol trRosetta_protocol.xml \
-database $ROSETTA/main/database/ \
-input_empty_pose true \  ### NOTE: I used this one after this ERROR: Attempting to initiate job distribution for input job 'S', but the generated pose has no residues.make sure you specified a valid input PDB, silent file or database. If this is intended, use the flag '-input_empty_pose true' (we check this to quickly curb silly mistakes, such as accidentally providing pdb (or other input) files with no atoms)

I haven't verified this carefully but "2021.07" should mean "the 7th week of 2021", which is in February; the trrosetta C++ didn't go online until a few weeks ago (so probably early April?) - I think it's just not there yet in the released code.

In the download page, release date is given as Thursday, March 4, 2021 for "2021.07". That is why, I thought that it may be in this released version.
