Locate just finds the files in the file system, without any respect  
to applications that might like to use them. Kpsewhich finds them as  
if TeX would try to find them.

Maybe you forgot to run 'sudo texhash' to make them know to TeX (like  
locate TeX just searches a set of files for names, and these "hash"  
files need to be re-generated after a change of TeX in its systematic  
trees, i.e. in /usr/local/texlive/).



We have to expect it, otherwise we would be surprised.
