I and my professor wrote lucida.sty many years ago for LaTeX 2.09.
There's no reason to use it now.  The lucida-sample.tex files uses
lucidabr, not lucida:


Does the lucida-sample.tex in the zip file we gave you really
\usepackage{lucida}?  I'm not seeing that ...

But anyway, I think the answer is to \usepackage{lucidabr} and be happy :).
