Just a couple of notes.

I don't think it's necessary to disable the utopia map when installing
fourier since they use differfent font names mapped to the same utopia

The textcomp.sty in '/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/tex/latex/base/'
seems to be an empty file! Won't this be found before the (old) one in

Good Luck,
