  I'm trying to install the Lucida fonts, but I've run into a snag.
  (Part of the log file is included at the end of this message.)

Here is what I have done:
I unzipped font files to c:\program files\TeXLive\texmf-local
I updated textcomp.sty
I ran mktexlsr from a command window with the following results:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

mktexlsr: Updating c:/Program Files/TeXLive/texmf-var/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updating c:/Program Files/TeXLive/texmf-local/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updating c:/Program Files/TeXLive/texmf/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Done.


I tried lucida-sample.tex and got the following (in part):

This is e-TeXk, Version 3.141592-2.1 (Web2c 7.5.2)

I can kind of see what the problem is, but I don't know how to fix it.

Thanks for your help
