How did you do the copy?
Have you checked that the file ownership and permissions are correct for
the new user?

Is $PATH set correctly in the new user and does it match default
software locations for Fedora 15?

Bear in mind that the filing system differs between Debian-based distros
(such as Ubuntu) and RedHat distros, e.g. Fedora, and that this may mean
that search paths copied from one to the other may not work correctly.
