[Tex/LaTex] How to install texlive-fonts-recommended (from Debian/Ubuntu) into texlive2012 (CTAN)


while compiling my tex file, I am getting lots of this error —

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 0+540/600 --dpi 540 zplmr7v
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for zplmr7v.
dvips: Font zplmr7v not found,  using cmr10 instead.
dvips: Checksum mismatch in font zplmr7v

so far I understood (after googling), I need to install a package called 'texlive-fonts-recommended' which is currently maintained as in the texlive version for Debian/Ubuntu. But I am using the main texlive2012 distribution from the CTAN (http://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html). How do I do that? I am running a *nix system which is not a Debian derivative.

from dcmst's answer --

user@host:~$ tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended

Some systems might require to run tlmgr as root, so add sudo:

user@host:~$ sudo tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended
