# calligra error finding callig15 redux

This question has been asked before, in particular inthis thread which for some completely inexplicable reason was closed because it was unlikely to be of help to future readers. An answer would certainly be helpful to me, and I imagine many other readers. Since the last question on this topic that I could find on the web was dated 2013, I'm hoping that some way of resolving the problem has been identified by somebody. To reiterate virtually verbatim that thread, here's the minimal example

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


Here's the message i get I run it:

Any help resolving this issue would be most appreciated.
