epstopdf --outfile=$$o $$i is set in the converter.

How do I get the epstopdf? I tried this:

tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended
(running on Debian, switching to user mode!)
tlmgr: package repository (verified)
tlmgr install: package already present: collection-fontsrecommended

tlmgr install texlive-font-utils
(running on Debian, switching to user mode!)
tlmgr: package repository (verified)
tlmgr install: package texlive-font-utils not present in repository.
tlmgr: action install returned an error; continuing.
tlmgr: An error has occurred. See above messages. Exiting.
