Of course, besides the fonts themselves you need to *have* the LaTeX  
sytle file(s), and *use* them. The files are those contained inthe  
folder "tex > latex > lucidabr" of the package distributed by TUG,  
i.e., lucidabr.sty and the like (this one is the main one). Then you  
have to insert "\usepackage{lucidabr}" in your source document, with  
or without options; see the documents "source > fonts > lucidabr >  
README.TUG" and "source > fonts > lucidabr > lucidabr.pdf". One final  
thing: If you use the lucida fonts for math and want to have the ams  
symbols, do *not* use the amssyb package: lucidabr takes care of  
everything; in turn, it is useful to include the textcomp package.

Hope this helps,
