I'm sorry but I can no longer answer individual requests for help on  
TeX matters.

After some time posting to the Mac OS TeX list, I started receiving  
direct requests like this one. Though startled, I did my best to  
help. It could take anything between 10 mins and several hours, and  
require several email exchanges. Often, after proposing a solution I  
stopped receiving anything from the person having requested help,  
which I suppose means the solution worked. I found this lack of  
feedback and consideration rather frustrating and ungratifying, and  
decided to stop answering direct help requests.

There is a whole community of Mac TeX users, some newcomers and  
others very experienced, willing to help and to share the solution of  
any particular problem, so that others can benefit from the solution  
as well. See the Mac-TeX site <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/>, and  
the two mailing lists "Mac OS X TeX" (very active) and "Mac OS X TeX  
Fonts" (not very active).

Regarding the Lucida fonts, there's the general tutorial at <http:// 
homepage.mac.com/bkerstetter/tex/fonttutorial-current.html> and a  
number of past threads at the Mac OS X TeX list. A few years back, I  
think, Gary Gray has posted a message describing the conversion and  
installation process in detail, for the Textures Lucida fonts, though  
I cannot locate this message in the list archive.

I'm cc'ing this message to the OS X TeX list, as I'm sure there'll be  
people there able to help you in no time.

Good luck,

Bruno Voisin
