[NTG-context] just some questions

Hello list.

I just have a pairof questions. Could someone point me to the fonts'
script used by mtxrun?

back in, let's see.. 2011, Mojca replied to Vladimir Lomov, with:

And yes, I even removed the cache file, since it generates itself,
correct? 

I just can't figure out why this problem occurs with the files packed for
ubuntu texlive, and I'm almost sure of not having duplicate files, unless I
probably missed them, of course! 

I think I tried all the options available. 

I know mtxrun script is implemented there as well (in ubuntu texlive).

I tried with separate installations first, and finally settled with texlive
full, but it made no difference. 

I know it works in x64 for example, but for some reason, it refuses to
follow the exemplary behavior in an i386. (Most of the modules fail or
wouldn't find types). 

And why would ubuntu maintainers have anything to do with it? It's
probably my own misconfiguration. But what could be the cause?

Thank you in advance, for your time. :)

Bye bye
Carlos
