I want to ensure I have the packages pst-pdf, auto-pst-pdf and pdfcrop.

I run tlmgr --gui and search for these and appear to install them.

However, if then do kpsewhich pst-pdf at the terminal it does not return the location etc. (only psfrag returns a location). Does this mean the packages are not installed? If not how do I install them and why is the GUI installation appearing to work but not.

kpsewhich is searching for files, not package names, so you need to add the extension .sty behind it:

kpsewhich pst-pdf.sty

Then I get:

/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/pst-pdf/pst-pdf.sty

while without .sty I don't get anything printed.
