What about for Debian or Ubuntu ? There is no urw-fonts package for them. Are there any other packages not mentioned that are important for these two distributions ?

Humm... on a Debian system (mix of unstable and testing) that shows
nothing.  But

ramon at Bufo:~$ apt-cache search urw | grep tex
fonts-texgyre - OpenType fonts based on URW Fonts
tex-gyre - scalable PostScript and OpenType fonts based on URW Fonts
python-urwid-satext - collection of urwid widgets
ramon at Bufo:~$

shows two possibly relevant packages.

(Maybe this is a Ubuntu/Debian difference? I think Dirk has some machines
running Ubuntu).
