Hans,

cp: cannot stat '/tmp/testContext/tex/texmf-context/scripts/context/lua/mtx-install.lua': No such file or directory

If you want to run ConTeXt everywhere, you need to adapt the path, like:

  export PATH=/tmp/testContext/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin:$PATH

If you run from an editor you can specify the full path to mtxrun:

  /tmp/testContext/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin/mtxrun --autogenerate --script context --autopdf ...

The following settings were used:

  server   : lmtx.contextgarden.net,lmtx.pragma-ade.com,lmtx.pragma-ade.nl
  instance : install-lmtx
  extras   : 
  ownpath  : /tmp/testContext
  platform : linux-64
