Also, at some point the old lucida map files were no longer part of the TeX Live distribution. You may have to go the CTAN and get the latest version of the map file for the lucida fonts.

So this is the problem. On my old machine I have them the maps in /usr/local/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips. They don't exist on my new machine, so I need to copy them over.

One question. Can I put them in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips? My whole goal (the reason that I install the fonts locally) is to try to isolate all the lucida stuff (and all my other localizations) in one place, away from /usr/local, so that when I migrate machines, I know exactly what needs to be moved. Can the map files live in there too? updmap will look in there for the map files, right?
