You should remove the first "Lucida" from your path


making it instead


Here on my working (Mac) setup

$ kpsewhich lucida.map

Says kpsewhich

$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXFONTMAPS

I don't remember the specifics of the syntax (ie what {} and !! precisely mean), but in essence this seems to say map files can be either in

- the current directory, or

- any texmf tree at TEXMF/fonts/map/{kpsewhich,pdftex,dvips}/*

You can inspect texmf.cnf to be sure (at TEXMFDIST/web2c/texmf.cnf). Here in TeX Live 2018 it says:

TEXFONTMAPS = $TEXMFDOTDIR;$TEXMF/fonts/map/{$progname,pdftex,dvips,}//

So it seems the location can be any of


where <your-prog-name> is the particular brand of TeX for which you installed the map files (luatex, xetex, dvipdfm, dvipdfmx, etc.).

Hope this works,
