Yes, if you find cm fonts too spindly, lucida is Soviet-era sturdy. 
Built like the proverbial brick ****-house.

Check that the encoding is the same as you were using before and install 
all the outline fonts in the installation including all the support 
files: vf, tfm, fd files.

If you've got bits left over after assembling a watch then it's time to 
go back to the instruction manual---which in this case is the supplied 
pdf. I can only say that my install went pretty smoothly.

That may not be as helpful as you'd like but with font installation 
there are lots of places where things can go wrong.
