Yesterday i did install MacTeX.pkg over Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8).
Did i decided to test the installation with xetex and opentype using
"opentype-info.tex" making use of :

% Select the font name:
\def\myfontname{Latin Modern Roman}
%%% OpenType-info.tex %%%

\font\testfont="\myfontname/ICU" at 12pt

I did that after having done the following :
$ sudo mkdir -p /etc/fonts/conf.d
$ sudo cp
$ sudo fc-cache -fsv
which found hundrets of fonts in :
and ending with:
/usr/X11/var/cache/fontconfig: cleaning cache directory
fc-cache: succeeded

after that I've tested "opentype-info.tex" using :
$ xetex opentype-info.tex
giving badly :
This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-0.9998 (TeX Live 2012)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
(./opentype-info.texkpathsea: Invalid fontname `Latin Modern Roman/ICU',
contains ' '

! Font \testfont="Latin Modern Roman/ICU" at 12.0pt not loadable: Metric
file or installed font not found.
l.26 \font\testfont="\myfontname/ICU" at 12pt


some one on french forum gave me an advice to verify mu setup :
$ fc-list -v | grep -i latin
giving no output at all.

what did I mess ??
i've already installed MacTeX.pkg but rather on another computer under
Mountain Lion where it is working correctly.
