Yes. I've been thinking that when he installed TeXworks, Debian/Ubuntu 
TeXLive got installed as a dependency, and being 
/usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux at the end of the $PATH, the 
repositories distribution takes precedence.

That won't work for his Lucida test, as he installed the fonts in 
/usr/local/share/texmf. I think David should set the $PATH in 
/etc/environment like

PATH="/usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux:/usr/local/sbin: ... "
                                 don't forget the semicolon!

logout and log back in, and check with ` echo $PATH ' if now TUG's 
TeXLive is indeed at the beginning of the PATH; then install all Lucida 
files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local in their proper subdirectories, 
followed by texhash and enabling the map with updmap-sys.
