I know I must be doing something silly here, but I do not know what.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}%
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{newtxtext,newtxmath}

\begin{document}

This is my equation
$\mathbf{\dot{x}}=A x \mathbf{x}$

\end{document}

When compiled with lualatex foo.tex the math is missing the dot over the x.

But it should be like this:

\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}

This is my equation
$\mathbf{\dot{x}}=A x \mathbf{x}$

    dont use newtxtext with luatex that is an 8bit Times clone, for classic tex, use fontspec and TeX Gyre Termes – David Carlisle Nov 9 at 9:08
  • @DavidCarlisle thank you. Is there a MWE to help me see how it is done? I get lost with all the different font naming and configurations needed. – Nasser Nov 9 at 9:11
  • What does "TL 2019" mean? – Peter Mortensen Nov 9 at 21:30
  • @PeterMortensen TL is short hand for TeXLive – Nasser Nov 10 at 1:59

It is better to use OTF fonts with luatex, perhaps:

enter image description here

\documentclass[12pt]{article}%
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{unicode-math}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
\setmathfont{TeX Gyre Termes Math}
\begin{document}

This is my equation
$\mathbf{\dot{x}}=A x \mathbf{x}$

although perhaps better
$\dot{\symbf{x}}=A x \symbf{x}$

or
$\dot{\symbfit{x}}=A x \symbfit{x}$
\end{document}

The package newtxtext won't work along with fontspec.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{newtxmath}

\setmainfont{Tempora} % or whatever Times clone you prefer

\begin{document}

This is my equation
$\dot{\mathbf{x}}=A x \mathbf{x}$

\end{document}

enter image description here

Note that also the pdflatex code

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{newtxtext,newtxmath}

\begin{document}

This is my equation
$\mathbf{\dot{x}}=A x \mathbf{x}$

\end{document}

would fail to produce the dot. Whether this is a bug of newtxmath is disputable. I believe that the correct syntax is

\dot{\mathbf{x}}

Although I agree with David Carlisle completely, the literal answer to the question you asked—how to use the newtxtext and newtxmath packages specifically—is this:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}%
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{newtxtext,newtxmath}
\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}

\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}[NFSSFamily = ntxtlf]

\begin{document}

This is my equation:
$\dot{\mathbf{x}} = A x \mathbf{x} = \boldsymbol{\dot{\mathrm{x}}}$

\end{document}

Newtx font sample

You should never do that, but you might realistically want to use fontspec with a legacy math package, and drop only newtxtext. If you really, truly, need to mix Unicode with legacy text encodings, the package for that is luainputenc. You might run into problems with things like capital Greek letters, which many legacy math packages load from the OT1 encoding.

For practical real-world use, you’re better off switching to unicode-math.
