 Hello Ciro,

 But you got your distribution from some source?

I downloaded the CD iso image from a website
and installed Fedora Core 3.

 
  what is the local guide you refer to?
 
 This should come with your TeX system (Linux system,
 downloaded TeX
 system, whatever) that tells you about things that
 you need to know
 about your TeX system. Including the available
 fonts. Since I don't
 know what your TeX system is, I can't tell you if
 you have such a
 local guide. If it is not on your system, you should
 complain to the
 person that gave you the TeX.

Similarly, I downloaded texlive2004 CD from the
tug.org, and installed it according to the
instructions
in the CD. What is the name of the 'local guide' file?

Thank you Patrick...

I am my distributor maintainer. 
I installed linux in my pc box less than a year ago,
and I see font files everywhere (X directory fonts,
TeX directory fonts, TrueType, OpenType, Type1,
etc...)
but don't know if they are accessible from Context.
what is the local guide you refer to?

Wouldn't it be nice to have a command in Context like:

\listavailablefonts [type1 | truetype | ... | all]

or

\listavailablefamilyfonts [] ...

and another to check whether  a font is properly
installed (that is, whether it has \bf, \it,
\sc, math, etc), like:

\checkfont [fontname]

Luigi, thank you. I've read the outdated documents
you suggested, but still ...

Ciro

 Hello Ciro,
 
  Okay, this business of
 fonts/files/names/encoding/etc
  is really difficult to understand for me.
 
 welcome to the club ;-)
 
  I have a simple question. How do I list all fonts
  I have available to use in ConTeXt in the
  machine/system I have? Is there a file
  where I can see the names of all these fonts?
 
 This should be stated in your local guide. If not,
 complain to the
 distribution maintainer.
 
  And is there a template file or a command
  to display the entire set of characters once I
 know
  the
  name of fonts?
 
 \showfont[Serif]
 
 and alike.
 
 Patrick
