that looks like it is requiring a very specific font, at a very
specific size - have you tried changing it to some other font?

also, you could try installing all of the texlive packages

$ pacman -Sg texlive-most

this is caused by missing ecfonts in our distribution of texlive, that are being substituted for the Computer Modern Roman (cmr) font set as default by pdflatex.

ecfonts is being added back to the distribution in the next update, since it has changed its license to become free software as recognized by the FSF.
