you also need an XC section in the DFT section.

DFT/XC defines the XC functional for the ground state DFT calculation.
The TDDTPT/XC section defines the functional for the kernel.
Have a look for sample inputs in

Dear Cp2k user,
im running a tddfpt calculation in cp2k but encountered an error  *********************************************************** *** ERROR in read_dft_control (MODULE cp_control_utils) *** ***********************************************************
