Dear Willem,

The page


describes a possible procedure using tlmgr (the TeX Live Manager):

> - From the Windows Start Menu, find the TeX Live 2018 (or TeX Live 2017) group and use the shortcut TeX Live Manager to start the TeX Live Manager program.
> - Use the Actions menu item from the TeX Live Manager and then the menu item Update filename database.
> - This begins the update process.  Wait until you see in the message area of the program "mktexlsr: Done."
> - Use the tlmgr menu item and then Quit to exit the TeX Live Manager.

I’m not sure whether this applies to installation in texmf-local (ie system-wide), or only to account-specific installations. You’ll have to try.

There must be a procedure running mktexlsr on the command line with administrator privileges, but I don’t know how to do that in Windows, unfortunately.

Hopefully other list members will be able to help here.

Have a nice Holiday Season,

> I have Tex Live 2019, TeXmaker, a fresh WINDOWS 10.  
> I unzipped the relevant ZIP-file, merged the Type 1 fonts to texlive/texmf-local and I see,  clearly and unambiguously, that lucidabr.sty is placed there.
> Nevertheless, I keep getting the message: I cannot find lucidabr.sty.  Apparently, TeXmaker cannot find it, although it is present.
> Hence, my question: what is wrong here? You told me that on Windows you do not know how to proceed.  Maybe you can help me by telling me who might help me further.
