If you are using MkII (that is: if you are running "texexec"), you should use

If you use LuaTeX, there's no need to enable UTF-8. It's already the default.

I'm sorry to hear that.

The idea is to install fonts to
or somewhere else. But the files get removed from "texmf",
"texmf-context", "texmf-modules" etc.

I'm sorry that that wasn't clear (or maybe not even mentioned) in the

set up properly), but you should definitely switch to LuaTeX.
