I feel your pain, Bruno, having recently reinstalled Lucida support  
myself. TeX's font setup is really primitive, and the (extremely  
puzzling, from my point of view) decision by the TeXLive people to  
omit the Lucida support files just adds to the pain for a lot of  
people. Thanks for all your work writing instructions and helping the  
rest of us get our fonts in shape.
