You have to tell us which platform are you using. Assuming a *n*x  
platform (I'm using Mac OS), if you installed the fonts in your $HOME  
tree, the map goes in


on a Mac, and I think should be


in Linux. Or, if you installed system wide, it is


on a Mac, and I think something very similar en Linux. In a terminal, do

kpsewhich --show-path=map

and look for the first results.

Rebuild the ls-R databases again, and then

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=lucida.map

so pdftex and dvips can use the fonts.

If you're using Windows, I'm so sorry ---I don't know what to do.
