# Error finding callig15 [closed]

The font calligra is not working on my system (Ubuntu, installed LaTeX by installing Texmaker, which installs the dependencies).

When I try to compile this minimal example at the command line,

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{calligra}
\begin{document}
\calligra
This is a test of a calligraphy font.
\normalfont
\end{document}


I get the following:

kpathsea: Running mktexmf callig15
! I can't find file callig15'.
<*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input callig15

Please type another input file name
! Emergency stop.
<*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input callig15

Transcript written on mfput.log.
grep: callig15.log: No such file or directory
mktextfm: mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input callig15' failed to make callig15.tfm.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
! Font T1/calligra/m/n/12=callig15 at 17.28003pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.


I tried creating my own texmf/tex/latex/calligra directory with callig15.mf and calligra.mf in it and running texhash on it according to the Ubuntu Community Help Wiki, but this did not change anything. According to dlocate, calligra is located in the texlive-latex-extra package, which I have installed. dlocate does not find callig15, however. Could this be the problem?

mf-files should go in texmf/fonts/source. –  Ulrike Fischer Mar 19 at 13:26
