I installed LibreOffice 4.0 and Calligra 2.6.1 on my Fedora 18 x86_64 machine.
I've copied symbol and its related fonts files into the fonts directory.
While LibreOffice can display normally, Calligra shows only rectangulars instead of symbols.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a MS Office document which contains formulas and symbols by MS Office Suite.
2. Open it by Calligra.
All the symbols become rectangular shapes.
Display symbols normally just like LibreOffice does.
i think you have maybe just forgot to install the font. copying the files over is not enough
I'm pretty sure it works, but please attach a testfile if you still cant get it to work
is the command to be run

I've tried the command you mentioned above. Still, not fixed.
I've uploaded the standard output of calligrastage and "fc-cache -fv" command and related screenshots.
P.S. I've installed full suite of calligra.
well you have not installed the fonts (the fc-cache output shows it) - it's a local issue - sorry but I don't have time to help you (i'm busy) - try getting help from your distribution or search the internet - it's not calligra specific - most packaging of libreoffice installs it's own copy of fonts
calligra (or rather Qt) uses the system
you may have to copy fonts from a windows installation or at least install mscorefonts package

This ODP file is converted from M$ document.

Original M$ file.
Sorry to disturb you. But the problem still exists even though I installed almost all symbol fonts.
I've asked folks on IRC #fedora-kde , they suggest me to upload my presentation files so you could reproduce the problem.
Actually, the problem maybe more about formula rather than symbols.

in particular, warnings about
Unknown Calligra MimeType "application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.formula"
is likely the concern here
Fwiw, I have all matter of symbol fonts available and installed too, but seems to me that's not relevant here (imo)

proof it works in calligra
As you can see on this link it works without a problem for me
it has all the symptoms of missing font to me
it is an emf or wmf image so there is not even talk about a formula
OK, I think I found the root cause, and it's related to our fedora packaging. :(
When kformula was removed/disabled from calligra, our packaging scripts omitted kformulapart.desktop , since it apparently referenced a non-existent,
I don't quite fully understand it, but installing that missing file makes things work (again).
ok thanks, it sounds really weird indeed
