You installed it as root or as normal user?

Well, then the PATH for root is not set up to search the texlive bin dir.

How did you set up the path for yourself? Did you as user adjust 
something like putting
into your .bashrc? Or did you symlink the binaries into $HOME/bin, or
something else?

That are in fact quite TeX unrelated questions, it is about checking
the environment of root. You could do
	sudo env
and see the output for PATH and other settings.
