I would advise using the latter set of map files. Both sets use Karl- 
Berry-style file names for metrics (for example hlhr8r.tfm), but the  
former set (lucidabr-k.map and lumath-k.map) suppose the PFB font  
files have Karl-Berry-style names (for example hlhr8a.pfb) while the  
latter set (lucidabr.map and lumath.map) supposes the PFB font files  
have kept the original Y&Y names (for example lbr.pfb).

As a complement, I would suggest activating also the map files  
lucidabr-o.map and lumath-o.map. These use the Y&Y names for both the  
TFM files and the PFB files. It's necessary for using the Lucida  
fonts in plain TeX, using the Y&Y-supplied lcdplain.tex and  

In summary:

lucidabr-o.map: Y&Y TFM names (e.g. lbr.tfm) and Y&Y PFB names (e.g.  
lbr.pfb) for text
lumath-o.map: Y&Y TFM names (e.g. lbmr.tfm) and Y&Y PFB names (e.g.  
lbmr.pfb) for math

lucidabr.map: KB TFM names (e.g. hlhr8r.tfm) and Y&Y PFB names (e.g.  
lbr.pfb) for text
lumath.map: KB TFM names (e.g. hlcrm.tfm) and Y&Y PFB names (e.g.  
lbmr.pfb) for math

lucidabr-k.map: KB TFM names (e.g. hlhr8r.tfm) and KB PFB names (e.g.  
hlhr8r.pfb) for text
lumath-k.map: KB TFM names (e.g. hlcrm.tfm) and KB PFB names (e.g.  
hlcrm.pfb) for math

All these map files are pre-installed and live in:


I would suggest using the Y&Y PFB file names, and then typing in  

	sudo -H texhash
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lumath.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lumath-o.map

Hope this helps,
