I've installed TeXLive on Mountain Lion. The TeX Live Utility says that the tex-gyre package is installed, however these fonts don't appear on my system and I actually get errors when trying to use them with XeLaTeX. What do I need to do to get this working?

In my installation (MacTeX 2012) the fonts seem to be located into /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/fonts/, especially into the "opentype" and "truetype" folders. If you can't find them, you can try running:

locate tex-gyre

Once you have located the fonts, to install them just copy them into ~/Library/Fonts (user-specific) or /Library/Fonts (system-wide).
