[lucida] Lucida Bright installation trouble on Debian

Having gone through this recently, installing the fonts onto a couple
of Ubuntu 9.04 systems running TeXlive 2008, I have the fonts working
on both (AFAIK). Running the same grep command on one of these:

mas at voco:~$ locate lucida | grep sty

( on my systems, kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFLOCAL returns
and hence the difference in installation directory from your system, I assume)

latex lucida-sample.tex runs without a problem and the log file .sty
references are:

mas at voco:~/lucida-test$ grep '\.sty' lucida-sample.log

Hope that helps
