Just realised (after reading Michael Murray's message) that I forgot 
something basic: you have to (1) convert your MathTime fonts to PFB 
format and (2) install them at the appropriate place.

I have Lucida and MathTime fonts installed. Here's (as far as I can 
remember) what I did:

(1) Assuming you have the font in former Apple LaserWriter format (LWFN 
font file), CMacTeX contains a utility t1utils for performing the 
conversion to PFB format. From a posting to this list by Tom Kiffe, on 2 
May 2001:

(2) In your home directory create, if it's not already here, a directory 
~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/yandy/mathtime, and put your PFB files 
there. For me, I have just the basic MathTimes set, that's


As a whole, my directories for Lucida and MathTime fonts in 
~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/yandy/ are, just like Michael Murray said:


And it all works for me too!
