Hello,

Sorry I did not get back to you earlier, it got hectic starting Monday
morning.

I am sorry but I do not understand what exactly I am supposed to do.

I installed following those instructions from Luigi, on a previous message:
Open a shell as a root and then
#> mkdir -p /opt/context/minimals-2010-07-
03
#> cd /opt/context/minimals-2010-07-03
#> rsync -av rsync://contextgarden.net/minimals/setup/first-setup.sh .
#> bash first-setup.sh  ## wait a bit...
#> cd tex
#> . setuptex

When I run luatools --generate, I get this :

LuaTools | fileio: variable 'SELFAUTOLOC' set to '/usr/bin'
LuaTools | fileio: variable 'SELFAUTODIR' set to '/usr'
LuaTools | fileio: variable 'SELFAUTOPARENT' set to '/'
LuaTools | fileio: variable 'TEXMFCNF' set to
'{$SELFAUTODIR,$SELFAUTOPARENT}{,{/share,}/texmf{-local,.local,}/web2c}'
LuaTools | fileio: loading configuration file
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
LuaTools | fileio: preparing 'configuration' for '/usr/share/texmf/web2c'

LuaTools | fileio: tex locator '/home/pascale/.texmf-var' found
LuaTools | fileio: hash '/home/pascale/.texmf-var' appended
LuaTools | fileio: locating list of '/home/pascale/texmf'
LuaTools | fileio: tex locator '/home/pascale/texmf' not found
LuaTools | fileio: locating list of '/etc/texmf'
 (etc...)


The context executable is located in:

/opt/context/minimals-2010-07-03/tex/texmf-linux/bin

What am I supposed to put into my .profile file?

export PATH = /opt/context/minimals-2010-07-03/tex/texmf-linux/bin    (??)
Is it what you meant by

"I don't know those two programs in detail. But as a general rule, you
need to add
   /path/to/tex/texmf-
linuxorwhateverelse/bin
to PATH." ?

Is it then that I have to run luatools --generate?

I am sorry but I am not famiiar with this type of installation, and I am
having a hard time figuring out the difference between the use of
"/path/to/" as in /opt/context/minimals-2010-07-03/tex/texmf-linux/bin and
"/path/to" as in ". /path/to/setupetex"...

I hope you don't mind my questions and that I can finish this installation.

Thank you again very much in advance.
