The encoding is a mapping of glyph positions onto some new set of
positions so that TeX knows where to find them.

The positions for the vf files are in the fonts folder with the tfm
folder and the type 1 folder. They are named separately.

It means the .pfb files. These are what cost all the money. The rest can
be freely distributed.

I didn't change from upper to lowercase and wonder if that is where your
problem came in. Try installing the originals with their uppercase names.

Also: you really don't need everything about encoding in the preamble.
That should work if everything is configured correctly.
But it sound as if your system doesn't know that the pfb fonts are
there. (You can see what lucida fonts should look like by looking at The
Latex Companion. It was done in lucida.)
