Yes, install your font (I assume is Gentium) on your operative system. Run "mtxrun --script fonts --reload". (Not sure it is required, but I need this each time I install a font.) And (assuming you installed Gentium), here is the sample code: \usemodule[simplefonts] \setmainfont[Gentium] \starttext \input knuth \stoptext Compile it with "context gentium.tex" (change file name accordingly) and it should work. If not, please try to describe what happened.
