In case you haven't purchased them: yes, the Lucida Bright and New Math 
fonts aren't free, they must be purchased from Y&Y 
<http://www.yandy.com/> which, however, appears to be temporarily out 
of business (comp.text.tex has some rumouring about this). In case you 
get the fonts, ask for getting them in PFB format, not Mac format 
(which would be a set of FFIL screen suitcases and LWFN printer font 
files appropriate for Classic).

You may also try to purchase them from Blue Sky TeX Systems 
<http://www.bluesky.com/>, in which case you're likely to get the Mac 
format version.

You must do either

	sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lumath.map


	sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr-k.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lumath-k.map

but not the two (this is a XOR). To undo what you've done wrong, just

	sudo updmap --disable lucidabr-k.map
	sudo updmap --disable lumath-k.map

On the other hand, you can leave

	sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lumath-o.map

as it doesn't conflict with the other declarations.
