$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFLOCAL
So that's where I've put the Lucida files. Certainly the instructions
suggest that "The default on Unix is /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local",
but that's not what my installation has created. If I put the Lucida
files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local, presumably I'd need to change

Sorry, my mistake. I've just tried tex testfont again with hlcbot8a, and
that works. But pdftex testfont gives
!pdfTeX error: pdftex (file hlcbot8a): Font hlcbot8a at 600 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
Maybe that's why I can't compile lucida-sample.tex with TeXworks/pdfLaTeX.

No, I have two machines. Each machine has a single installation of TeX
Live: the downloaded version on the ancient machine, and the TUG DVD on
the new machine. The file structures are the same on the two machines,
as far as I can see; but one works and the other doesn't.
Thank you. There's also been a message from Norbert Preining, who says
that he might be able to add some more comments over the weekend.
