Bug Description

When i open my ".pdf" with Evince or Xpdf, on many frames i don't see the text.
So in the Terminal I can see :
Error: Couldn't create a font for 'KIKSAZ+TimesNewRomanPSMT'

After acroread's install , I don't have any more this problem.

Why this problem with evince and Xpdf.

PS : My .pdf has been created with Adobe Indesign Cs (Windows)

Thanks for all solutions.

With "acroread" we can see on 4th page my synopsis of training course, so with
'Xpdf' or 'Evince' we see only green point.

I am sorry , i didn't see your complete comment. I use Ubuntu for 8 days and i'm
french, it's why i have many difficulty with "Bugzilla"...

My .pdf is here (> 1mo) http://ms84.free.fr/rapport_CAVILAM.pdf

Don't worry for the comment, and thanks for the pdf. It works fine with the
current evince 0.4.0 version (which will be used for 5.10), I'm marking the bug
as fixed. The issue is quite specific so there will not be an hoary update for
it but it'll get fixed for you when you update to the new Ubuntu 5.10 version.
