Is ~lucy your admin account or the non-admin user account? The ~luci/ 
Library/texmf/ branch will only be searched when logged in as luci.  
If you want all users to access certain files you should place them  
in the texmf-local branch (or texmf.pkgs branch for gwTeX); and don't  
forget to run `sudo texhash` after doing that.

Good Luck,
