Could you be more specific? Do you mean that, after disabling Lucida.map, then when you try enabling lucida.map you get the same message about a missing map file?

Looking again at your original message, I'm realizing you say that "sudo -H kpsewhich lucida.map" gives no result. That means you've not put it at the right place.

Running "kpsewhich --show-path=map" shows that, in TEXMFLOCAL, the appropriate places are


On my setup, the places I used are, for typical files,





Places for you may be slightly different, especially for the doc files: I built my own installation based on the files from CTAN and fonts purchased from PCTeX, hence I don't exactly which TDS-compliant distro TUG is providing.

In any case, I'm getting

	$ kpsewhich lucida.map

Also, the TUG instructions say "unzip the archive as retrieved. It unpacks into subdirectories fonts/, tex/, and so on". I know people who do that on the Mac (ie, unpack a whole zip archive into a pre-existing directory hierarchy), for example Dick Koch  of TeXShop and MacTeX fame does it.

But I must admit I don't know how to do this myself (maybe it requires the command line), so usually I end up just double-clicking the zip archive on the Desktop then moving manually all the subdirectories into place one by one.

Not sure that helps here though.
