Hi Mojca,
Thanks for you reply. 

It can found the metauml module after regenerating the database with 
luatools --generate
But it run into compiling error. For you convenience, append the
sources for mpost and context.

joshua at josh-dev ~/tmp $ cat activity.tex 
	  input metauml;

	  Activity.A("Learn MetaUML -",
		     "the MetaPost UML library");


joshua at josh-dev ~/tmp $ cat activity.mp 
	input metauml;

	  Activity.A("Learn MetaUML -",
		     "the MetaPost UML library");


activity.mp works with mpost, but activity.tex failed to compile with

Any suggestions?

Best regards,
