Hello. It could very well be a packaging issue as far I know. However, I suppose it may be prudent to wait for the next release and see if the bug persists on 5.2. You are using an alpha build, so I cannot confirm.
Please could you test with dev version?
I am using archlinux. I just tested your last build by extracting all your rpms, it is definitely not working on ArchLinux (exactly the same behaviour as with the previous version).
I just filled a bug within archlinux. If it *works* on the vanilla build elsewhere, it is probably a packaging issue or a bug whithin my own installation.
I have the same trouble only when the PDF is generated with
--headless --convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export
The export to PDF is correct when initiated from the GUI
The faulty PDF has more pages and the font info differs
I hope this helps to reproduce this on other distros,
as I'm on archlinux too.
This problem is absolutely recurrent with all the LO tools : draw, calc, writer, etc. It concerns printing as well as pdf export so one must assume that this is a shared subsystem which is concerned.

We are dropping support for Type 1 fonts in 5.3. The latest versions of GhostScript fonts are now in OpenType format as well.
I'm wondering if this issue is the same as the issue I logged here: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117451
"We are dropping support for Type 1 fonts in 5.3." - Which I'm sure means that there is no support for Type 1 fonts in v6.x. However, what I *don't* know is what type of font Calibri and Carlito are. Note that Calibri/Carlito are important fonts, because they are often requested for resumes. They have become something of a defacto standard. So I would say that this is not an edge case issue.
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

Calibri and Carlito are not Type 1 fonts. I don't think Microsoft ships such obsolete font technologies anymore.
