While digging around in my texmf-dist/doc/context/document/general/manuals directory, as I'm want to do on a Sunday, I found the "tiptrick" PDF, which helpfully suggests that I can install the ConTeXt minimals by doing the following:
cd ..../tex/texmf-local wget http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-tmf.zip unzip cont-tmf.zip texexec --make --alone --all
I do this in my $HOMETEXMF directory. The trouble is, I get the following head and tail when I run it from TextMate:
MTXrun | warning: no format found, forcing remake (commandline driven) MTXrun | fileio: loading configuration file '/usr/local/texlive/2010/texmfcnf.lua'
'/Users/andrew/Library/texlive/2010/texmf-var/luatex-cache/context/e9159e878e989105b2ef2d27fad97515/trees/1240e363db2f4c53de58379d2b0c6f6b.luc' ...andrew/src/texmf/scripts/context/lua/mtx-context.lua:985: attempt to call upvalue 'make_mkiv_format' (a nil value)
The interweb has suggested a few things.
minstall.pdf as a document of interest... not found on my computer anywhere...
Sounded promising, but nothing like that is in my install anywhere, except a Windows batch file called
setuptex.bat and not in my directory.
texexec --make --all, if that's supposed to help. So, using texexec seems to work now, but only kinda-sort-of. Getting fonts to work, either with
defined control sequence. l.139 \doifolderversionelse) or by using:
\usetypescriptfile[type-mac] \usetypescript[gillsans] \setupbodyfont[Gill Sans,12pt]
So, why is
mtxrun now broken? Which should I be using,
mtxrun? Why is
simplefonts broken and what really is the best method for font selection, given that I want to be able to put the fonts into my tds tree and have them portable between multiple computers that are building these documents, which are updated from source control. (I assign my
$HOMETEXMF directory to
src/texmf on every computer and plan on updating ConTeXt and related packages within this).
I admit to not fully understanding everything about this system, and I appologize for asking things that are probably explained somewhere else. I swear I've done my share of searching for the answer elsewhere. :) I'd be happy to RTFM, if I could find one that had the relevant information! :) Thanks all!
