Hi Jörg,

at least to avoid to run that again and again, I think you could add
that at last line of tex/setuptex.

BTW, do you have a  ~/.fonts/truetype/ directory? And does ConTeXt load
fonts from that directory without problems?

Could it be that you have an issue with permissions in the
~/.fonts/opentype/ directory?

What about creating a new directory with another name and moving your
fonts there?

I think it may be an issue with permissions.

Just in case it helps,
