Yes, you probably have to enable the lucida map files:

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

In the latest gwTeX altpdftex and altpdflatex have gone away and have  
been replaced by

simpdftex tex --maxpfb


simpdftex latex --maxpfb

respectively. Go to TeXShop->Preferences Engines tab and replace the  
corresponding lines by what is given above. For now make sure you  
have the Save Postscript File checkbox turned off (i.e., unchecked)  
for now; that's a bug that will get fixed in the next version of  

Good Luck,
