    > You need supply a path file named “path.txt” in your current directory or use flag “-path xxx/xxx” to tell rosetta where the file is. This file specifies the input/output file paths, the database and score output paths. The error you mentions is because that rosetta could not find the input file in the directory as the definition path.txt.

    you mean “paths.txt” ?

    there is one there (the one provided by the rosetta_documentation tar.gz file)
    The only modification I did was to change the data files to:
    ../../../../../rosetta_database/ (as stated in the Quick+Start page).

    the full “paths.txt” file is as follow:
    Rosetta Input/Output Paths (order essential)
    path is first ‘/’, ‘./’,or ‘../’ to next whitespace, must end with ‘/’
    native structure(required) ../
    unbound structure(optional) ../
    alternate data files(optional) ./
    fragments(not used) ./
    structure dssp (not used) ./
    sequence map(optional) ./
    constraints(optional) ../
    starting structure(required) ../prepack/
    data files(required) ../../../../../rosetta_database/
    movie ./
    pdb path ./
    score ./
    status ./
    user ./
    FRAGMENTS: (use ‘*****’ in place of pdb name and chain)
    2 number of valid fragment files
    3 frag file 1 size
    aa*****03_05.200_v1_3 name
    9 frag file 2 size
    aa*****09_05.200_v1_3 name

    The issue I have is that the “required” data files (in ../prepack) are not provided and I have no
    idea how to generate one (basic beginner question).
