Put both the lucida and lucidabr folders found in lucida-complete/tex/ 
latex/ in the corresponding folder in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ 
tex/latex/. Make sure to run

sudo mktexlsr

after putting the files there.

Just to make it clear, that command sets things up so that TeX can  
find the files quickly inside the /usr/local/texlive/ trees (actually  
it only uses this fast lookup there); you don't have to run the  
command if you place files in your personal tree that has its base in  

Since the files were working when placed in the same directory as the  
source file they should work fine after placing them in the correct  

Good Luck,
