[OS X TeX] Strange Behavior With Lucida Font

Thank you for the reply. I do not use the lucidabr package because it
completely destroys the math mode fonts. I am not sure why this is. I
am using Gerben's latest Tex install with the lucida package it comes

If I include the preamble you attached (which is what I tried first),
the equations do not render at all. If I add
afterwords, the math renders somewhat correctly but spacing,
integrals, and other characters are missing.

To avoid this, I put my own \renewcommand lines in to just substitute
the fonts I wanted rather than include the lucidabr package which
ruins everything.

use the official Lucida package instead?

ligatures are probably stored in a different location than tex expects
them to be.
AFAIK, the lucida fonts are not available in OT1 encoding, so try the
(BTW: I'm talking about the official Y&Y Lucida + Lucida New Math
release, are you
using he same?)


Does that help?
