Did you use the installer? I assume so. What happens if you just add 
/home/sam/context-lmtx/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin to your path?

There is a rather fundamental difference between a regular luatex/mkiv 
setup and luametatex/lmtx:

- in lmtx we only have one program, nothing else gets installed, there 
is no jit variant (and there will never be as we move on with lua: we 
use lua 5.4 here)

- mtxrun and context are both (on all platforms) symlinks to luametatex 
(can you check that? the installer should manage that)

- when installing there are no dependencies on other programs so missing 
programs cannot be a reason for a failed install

(Mojca will set up the garden and that will then be the primary source; 
the installer which is also the updater already know this.)
