[lucida] Lucida Bright installation trouble on Debian

I'm using Lucida fonts all the time. I can find no "lucida.sty" on my
~$ locate lucida | grep sty
Here is the process I used to install the lucida fonts. First I got
into the 'textmf-local' directory:
$ cd /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
Then I installed the Lucida fonts with
$ sudo unzip '/Users/vic/Archive/ TeX/lucida-complete.zip'
$ sudo mktexlsr /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
$ sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map
Obviously the first of the above lines points to where 'lucida-
complete.zip' is stored on my system.
I hope this helps.
