[lucida] problem with plainTeX using lucida

Is there   some Sample PlainTeX documents using Lucida  ? 

I bought lucida fonts several years ago from Y&Y and  used it with plaintex, it was OK. 
On last june I changed my computer and  I bought the lucida complete   font set from TUG. 
I am only now trying to use these fonts. I think the installation is OK because I succeed to compile the Sample LaTeX document  using Lucida and obtain right .ps and .pdf files. But I am unable to get something right with a PlainTex file. 
I tried to do like before and  I include (by /input at the beginning of macro file) a file called "texnansi.tex" and  a file called "lcdplain.tex" (obtained from the Y&Y distribution). 
My source file is "ex1_imp.tex" and "a4luc.tex" is a macro file (calling "texnansi.tex" and "lcdplain.tex"). 

I get the following answer:

Could someone tell me what I should do ? 
I use texlive 2005 on a linux system. 

Thanks a lot. 

Best regards.
