[lucida] Installation Lucida in Texmaker

Dear Axel, dear Bruno (in alphabetic order!), 

I finally succeeded in installing succesfully the Lucida fonts.  The secret was that I had to open the Console with administrators rights, by `mouse-clicking-right’. By pointing out that fact to me, it all came right. 

I must not forget to thank you for the help you gave me the last few days, and, in particular, for the hint regarding the administrators rights. 

Then, after unpacking the zip fonts and placing them in texmf/local,  it is simple to include the Lucida fonts: 
First, with administrator rights, go to 

C:\>updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map


That is all. 

What I got was the following, after starting with the command sudo:

C:\>sudo updmaps-sys enable Map lucida.map
'sudo' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Apparently, the command sudo to obtain administrators right is no longer useful.

C:\>updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map
updmap will read the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap may write changes to the following updmap.cfg file:
c:/texlive/2019/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg unchanged.  Map files not recreated.
updmap: Updating ls-R files.

mktexlsr: Updating C:/texlive/texmf-local/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updated C:/texlive/texmf-local/ls-R.
mktexlsr: Updating C:/texlive/2019/texmf-config/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updated C:/texlive/2019/texmf-config/ls-R.
mktexlsr: Updating C:/texlive/2019/texmf-var/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updated C:/texlive/2019/texmf-var/ls-R.
mktexlsr: Updating C:/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Updated C:/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/ls-R.
mktexlsr: Done..

My warmest regards,

Dear Axel,

Thanks for the letter below.  I will try and let you know.  A last question: how do I reply to `the list’, as you call it? Is that lucida at tug.com?

If I remember correctly, from the time I used Windows 7, to use 
updmap-sys you have to open the Command Prompt with administration 
privileges, or something like that; so just

     updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map

If you installed Lucida in texmf-local, just forget about «updmap» and 
always use «updmap-sys».

If at any point you make a mistake, don't worry, just run

     updmap-sys --syncwithtrees

and then again


     updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map

Best regards


P.S. Remember to reply to the list.
