I tried the example of "Problem to install Garamond font with mathdesign".
It for me, save I encounter exactly the same problems as those I've
described for KPfonts, using, in fact, "mathdesign" as template.

(Note: it's pure ConTEXt-standalone: I do not have these fonts in my
TeX-Live tree. Though I do have these fonts, installed manually, from
ctan, in my local "${HOME}/texmf/fonts/" tree.) % file: test.tex \loadtypescriptfile[mathdesign] \starttext$\Gamma\Gamma\bf\Gamma$\setupbodyfont[garamond]$\Gamma\Gamma\bf\Gamma\$

\stoptext

(Gammas are squeezed together and \bf is ineffective, which is not so
with modern).

If the assumption that "mdugmr7m.tfm" contains the metrics for
"md-gmm7m.pfb" is correct, then fontforge show it (mdugmr7m), contains
bold characters, which then should show.

Again, I might be misunderstanding.
