Hi Fabrice,

do you have any modules installed in your LMTX distribution?

As far as I know (sorry if I’ missing something), the user should
install the modules manually for LMTX.

Your sample compiles for me, but I copied the tex/texmf-modules
directory from the ConTeXt Suite to the LMTX distribution.

I hope this helps,
