[lucida] Problems Installing Lucida Fonts in TeXLive

Hi Anil,

1. Download the Lucida support files from CTAN.

2. Unfortunately that zip file has a top-level "lucida" directory.  That
   will confuse things.  So unzip it, cd lucida, and then make a new zip
   (or whatever starting at the next level, with doc/, fonts/, etc.)

3. Unpack that new zip file in the texmf-local directory TL is using.
   By default it's /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local, but I imagine Suse
   changed that.
4. mkdir fonts/type1/bh/lucida, put the pfb files from Y&Y there.  No
   need to rename them.

5. Run mktexlsr.

6. Run sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map

Hope this flies.


P.S. By the way, the directory structure in TL is not "completely"
different than what was in teTeX, unless Suse has gone bananas changing
