What I did is get it from CTAN (the CD version is probably be the 
same), put the different pieces in corresponding subdirectories of 
/Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local (creating the subdirectories in case 
they do not exist), then run in Terminal:

sudo mktexlsr
sudo updmap --enable Map utopia.map
sudo updmap --enable Map fourier.map

You're done!

In case you put the files in the directory ~/Library/texmf instead (no 
authentication required), then running mktexlsr (called texhash before) 
becomes unnecessary.

You may have enabled the map files for the Utopia fonts already, it's 
an optional install in the configuration stage of the TeX i-package 
(i.e. it's one, unchecked by default, in the list of map files to 

On my setup the different pieces are installed in the following 


The AFM files are not required for normal LaTeX use, but I think they 
are required by dvipdfm.

Beware: Herb Schulz, I think, said that, for the current version of the 
Fourier fonts on CTAN, a newer version of textcomp.sty is required than 
the one in Gerben's current setup. I haven't tried this myself.

Hope this helps,
