[OS X TeX] finding lmodern

I have what might well be a fairly newbie issue concerning LaTeX on OS 

I installed TeTeX (via i-Installer) and iTeXMac on my G4 laptop some 
time ago. I just installed them on my new G5 desktop machine.
I read in various FAQs that one can improve the look of the pdf 
documents generated by LaTeX by adding the following lines to the 
preamble of every LaTeX document:


This works fine on the laptop.
But on the desktop machine, when I try to typeset a LaTeX document, I 
get the following error message:

! LaTeX error: File 'lmodern.sty' not found.

I know that finding fonts is often a problem, but I thought that 
Imodern was supposed to be installed as part of TeTeX by default. I 
tried running "sudo texhash" in order to make sure that LaTeX would be 
able to find all the relevant files, but this made no difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
