This message tells you that fontspec does not receive the requested
font from the Mac OS X font service.

Check with Font Book („Schriftsammlung“) whether the Latin Modern
fonts are known to the system. If not, then create a new library in
Font Book and then add the fonts! Add don't add the PostScript Type 1
fonts when XeTeX deals with OpenType features! Finally make the
library and its fonts active.

Apple once provided its Font Tools suite. It can still be downloaded
and used – you just need PowerPC hardware or a Mac OS X in which
Rosetta works. No Lion...

Vielfalt im Regal statt Einfalt im Hirn!

I just installed BaseTeX + TeXShop today. By trying out the example at the
end of the document BaseTeX.pdf, I got the same error. Then I got this
thread, downloaded the Latin Modern Roman fonts, Using Font Book to install
the fonts to collection [Modern] where Optima, Helvetica Neue,... are there.

I re-complied the sample code in TeXShop and got the same errors (I even
quit and restart TeXShop, verified the fonts, but no use at all). Finally I
typed s and hit return in TeXShop's command field, it went through the
compilation and generated the pdf!

What should I do in order the let the system know the fonts are there? What
I need to have if I like to enter some Chinese text in TeXShop? Thanks for
your help.

--------------- Here is the compiling output -----
Invalid fontname `[lmroman10-regular]', contains '['
