Hi Stefan,

Have you looked at


It includes links to the installation instructions


to the support files for the fonts (tfm et al, including the map file)


(the first link is the ready-to-install package, organised according to the TeX Directory Structure, and the second link the files it's based on), and to the LaTeX package lucidabr



Hope this works,

Bruno Voisin
