No need to give the path for the texhash command:

sudo texhash

is certainly sufficient.

Do you also use sudo for the updmap-sys command? It should be

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=greek.map

and I assume that the *.map had the greek.map file in it; what map file(s) are supplied. I'd also place that map file in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/auto-greek (and rerun the texhas command above of course).

If you had the map file(s) in the correct folder in your personal tree they would have been found so there must be something wrong here.

What is the package called? I can't find auto-greek, autogreek or even auto greek on CTAN.

Good Luck,
