I just installed the latest version of Texlive 2011 from the iso; everything is fine, even tlmgr it's ok except the fact that it can't install new packages from the repository.

Fourier-GUTenberg provides all complementary typefaces needed to allow Utopia based TeX typesetting, including an extensive mathematics set and several other symbols. The system is absolutely stand- alone: apart from Utopia and Fourier, no other typefaces are required. The fourier fonts will also work with Adobe Utopia Expert fonts, which are only available for purchase.

Ok, what's wrong with tlmgr? When i try to compile a new document which uses the newly installed package, pdflatex can't find it.
