OK, I have just used this same method, and tried to xetex a single line
(Ceci est un essai de xetex). Using TeXworks, I had the message:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.2 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt xetex.fmt

I can't find the format file `xetex.fmt'!

and using the terminal, with command line: xetex test
Ireceive the same message.
I checked, and found xetex.fmt in the directory
and I added it to the working directories of TeXWorks.
No effect.
I asked: file xetex.fmt: gzip compressed data, from Unix, max speed.


Thank you for your help, anyway.
