Dear Hans and Alan,

First, thanks for your wonderful work!
I followed your instruction to install ConTeXt LMTX.
For the record, I wrote what I did.  Any comment is welcome to improve my 

- create directory: ConTeXtLMTX
- download install files.
- run “sudo sh ./”
- after a long lists, installation is done without errors.
        The following settings were used:
          server   :,,
  instance : install-lmtx
  extras   : 
  ownpath  : /Users/graph/ConTeXtLTMX
  platform : osx-64

- I copied my local files from “texmf-local” in ConTeXt MKIV and run mtxrun
- Recently, I am using Atom as an editor. I installed “process-pallete” packge 
and create a command as following:
        source /Users/graph/ConTeXtLMTX/tex/setuptex; 
        context {filePath} 
- At the first run, I got "permission denied” message.
/Users/graph/ConTeXtLTMX/tex/texmf-osx-64/bin/luametatex: Permission denied
- So I change the permission of luametatex as 755.
- After that I tested the sample file which is given in the installation.pdf
- Also there is no error when I compile my file which is good in ConTeXt MKIV.
- However, there is no simpleslide module. Of course, there is no 
"module/third” folder. Thus I couldn’t compile a file in screen mode.

I hope that I have done it right. I have a question.
Is it better to use"/Users/graph/ConTeXtLTMX/tex/texmf-osx-64/bin/mtxrun 
--autogenerate --script context --autopdf …" instead of “context {filePath}"?

Thank you for reading.

Best regards,
