Just finding time now to look at this very quickly.

First, to clear things up, here are two messages which I think  
contain all the necessary information:

- <http://tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2007-January/ 
027878.html> Step-by-step installation instructions

- <http://tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2007-January/ 
028032.html> A list of all the Lucida-related files on my setup

But on second thought I don't think that the problem in your case  
lies there. Rather, I think that the lines which you used (and which  
I had advised to you last year) must be replaced by:

sudo texhash
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lumath-o.map


- As I said in my first answer, replace "sudo -H" by "sudo" alone,  
given you installed the Lucida-related files in ~/Library/texmf not / 

- The files lucidabr.map and lumath.map have been suppressed in  
TeXLive, and must be replaced by the single file lucida.map available  
from CTAN.

If you want to avoid the wait while updmap-sys adds each file  
lucida.map, lucidabr-o.math and lumath-o.map in succession and  
recreates each time all the global map files psfonts.map, pdftex.map  
etc., you may instead use something like:

sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --syncwithtrees
sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lucida.map
sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lumath-o.map
sudo updmap-sys

Running texhash (= mktexlsr) first is I think unnecessary, as updmap- 
sys invokes it when it is run without the --nohash flag. However, I'm  
not fully sure, so if the above doesn't work you may run texhash then  
try again the above lines.

Hope this works,

Bruno Voisin
