I’m afraid it doesn’t work, Hans.

I even removed tex/texmf-cache/luatex-cache/, but no luck.

The only workaround I found in Linux is to add a symlinks to each font
file. This works now.

It seems as if LMTX couldn’t follow symlinks for directories in Linux.

On Windows, I will have to wait some days to have access to a computer
with it.

Many thanks for your help,
