Thanks for your help, Taco.

Fonts missing. But right now I realize that they work now. I had to
remove my $HOME/.texlive2011 directory and they work now.

I spent hours yesterday trying to find out what was wrong, but I didn't
tried after removing the home directory.

I get the error messages invoking these commands:

$ mtxrun --script fonts --list all
mtx-fonts.lua:176: attempt to call field 'formatcolumns' (a nil value)

$ mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=*
mtx-fonts.lua:176: attempt to call field 'formatcolumns' (a nil value)

$ mtxrun --script fonts --list --all

fontnames       | not supported: --list <no specification>

I don't know what is wrong here (sorry, I'm a ConTeXt newbie).

Thanks again for your help,
