TeX found that the package was not correctly installed. Did you  
forget a 'sudo texhash' for example?

Instead you can use the € symbol contained in a (rich and) modern  
PostScript or TrueType font:

	\usepackage[euro]{textcomp}	% << that's the important package
	\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}	% knows €, latin1 does not!

Simply typing € in the text will make it appear. If you want a  
particular shape to appear, then use \textrm{€} or \textsf{€} or  
\texttt{€}, together with bold, italic, slanted, some particular  
size ...

The textcomp package allows you to choose more symbols from a modern  
PostScript or TrueType font. Its documentation is not perfect.  
Looking into the STY file will reveal the relevant things (symbol  
names) and the options you can pass to package. For a few PostScript  
fonts these options are already pre-defined. It's part of fontinst,  
so 'texdoc fontinst' will add some details, but not explain much.

                 | O\   _\\/\-%                _`\<,
                 '()-'-(_)--(_)               (_)/(_)
