Many thanks for your replies, Thomas and Wolfgang.

My font directory /usr/share/fonts/ousia/ is actually a symlink to

It worked fine until newotf. I replaced the symlink. Now the font
directory points to tex/texmf-fonts.

After changing this, both the sample I provided and the one from
Wolfgang work fine.

I wonder why symlinks aren’t followed in the first case.

But I’m afraid I have a problematic font:

otf reader      > fatal error in file
.../ctxbeta/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/util-fil.lua:24: table
index is nil

I converted it from the typewritten fonts that came with txfonts.

What is wrong in the font?

Many thanks for your help,
