Hi Michel,

Norbert from the TeX Live project here.

Thanks for your work on the Fourier fonts. I would like to report a
problem that appears with the current setup: The file
uses fontconfig lookup to find the fonts:
which means that the font is only searched via fontconfig and **not**
via kpathsea.

But on most systems, the fonts in the various TeX directories are
**not** searched for system fonts and they need to be activated

I think it would be better to search the fonts via kpathsea/filename
lookup, by changing the above line to

    BoldFont   = FourierOrns-Bold.otf ,
    ItalicFont = FourierOrns-Italic.otf ,
    BoldItalicFont = FourierOrns-BoldItalic.otf ]

Thanks a lot for considering
