on Fedora?

if there

Don't think so... To install (La)TeX packages you can download and
install mpm:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/miktex/miktex-tools-2.5.2719-beta-15.tar.gz?download

This utility do the job for you, ie.: install packages with "official"
TDS in your /usr/local/share/texmf directory.

It is easy to use:

mpm --install=marginnote


You just have to run texhash after install (or texhash, then updmap if
you install fonts).
