You need to download and install it separately in the appropriate loactions in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. I believe there is a script you can get (getnonfreefonts?) that you can get that will do that for you.

Did the script enable the map file for the font? I don't remember if it does that.

Good Luck,
