I have just installed LaTeX again on my system, and I was trying to compile my CV, which is a moderncv template, however I am getting that error that seems like FontAwesome package cannot be found.

When locating FontAwesome--fontawesometwo on the system with locate -i FontAwesome--fontawesometwo I get the current tfm path /home/user/texmf/tex/latex/fontawesome/tfm/FontAwesome--fontawesometwo.tfm meaning it exist.

I know there are similar questions but no one does the trick for me yet.

The code minimalized is as follows:

\documentclass[9pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{green}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[scale=0.8]{geometry}
\firstname{myName}
\familyname{familyName}

\mobile{myMobile}
\email{myEmail}

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle % Print the CV title

\section{working experience}
\cvitem{2016}{some working experience}

\end{document}
