Thanks. I have also gotten them installed, I was mostly bothered about
the process which was a bit trial and error since I don't have the nice
zip-file the installation instructions talk about.

Today I discovered the lucimatx package:


It comes with a zip-file (strangely called "lucimacros.zip.tpm", but
it's just a zip-file) which you can download here:


The zip-file has the right layout -- I unpacked it in ~/texmf and moved
the .pfb files to ~/texmf/fonts/type1/lucida. After a 'updmap --enable
Map lucida.map' I was ready to go.
