I am unable to install Lucida Bright Postscript fonts in Windows 8

When I try to install Lucida Bright Postscript fonts I am asked if I want to replacing existing fonts  a: Yes.  Nothing much happens.  Font does not show in "Fonts" menu ...nor was I able to find anything relating to Lucida Bright prior to install.  These fonts installed fine under VISTA.

Interestingly I was able to install some postscript fonts such as Times Roman (tir) ...and they DO show up in "Fonts".


Hi Bill,



Please do reply to these questions for a better understanding of this issue.


1.       In which “Fonts” menu, are you not able to find the “Lucida Bright” fonts, even after installing it?

2.       How did you install “Lucida Bright” fonts in Windows 8?

3.       Did you try restarting the computer after installing/adding the fonts?


If you haven’t restarted the computer, then restart it and then check if it is available in the “Fonts” menu. We’ll also try deleting the existing version of the “Lucida Bright” font file from the “Fonts” folder and then add it again. Try the following steps and check if that helps.


Delete the existing “Lucida Bright” font file from the Fonts folder and then add it again.


a)       Press “Windows Logo” + “R” keys on the keyboard to open the “Run” command window.

b)       Type “Fonts” in the “Run” command box and press “Enter” key on the keyboard.

c)       In the “Fonts” folder, search for the “lbrite.ttf“ file and if it is present, then right click on it and choose “Delete”.

d)       If it is not present, then you can close the “Fonts” folder and then re-download the fonts and then install it again.

After installing the font, restart the computer and then check if you are able to find this font in the Fonts menu. If the issue persists, please do get back to us for further assistance. We’ll be glad to assist you.
