I a previous post I announced problems with Lucida fonts. I am  
satisfied to rectify and announce that I had NO problems after  
carefully following Bruno's instructions. Thank you!

By the way, in yesterday message:

I suppose 3 is 2, and 4 is 3.

I also installed TeX Live 2007 and the Lucida fonts in it. Switched  
to it, and everything works perfectly with a couple of papers. Both  
concerning beamer (see previous post) and Lucida.

Still, I have a question regarding where to put all those files, in  
the TeX Live 2007 case. I put them in the appropriate subfolders  
inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/, as advised by Bruno's  
instructions, and this has worked fine. However, I observed that some  
of the subfolders already exists, and in each of these cases, the  
(sub)folder contains a "final" subfolder named "local". My question  
is whether, for purity of directory structure, one should put  
everything inside these "local" folders, or not. For instance, should  
the .tfm files go into


as you say, or into


(the folder /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/tfm/local already  
exists) ?

Just being curious...

Thanks to Gerben and Maarten as well.
