pdf file not read correctly


Hi everybody,

Strange, until today, I believed that a pdf file written in any language can be read by a pdf reader, since it is binary !! For example evince, and not I was wrong !!
The following file is a pdf file in Arabic, it is read correctly under windows by acrobat reader, but not with evince, some parts are read but not others, (nevertheless my coding of the system is utf8), but what is the link with utf8, since pdf is binary !!
Please, how can I fix this problem, thank you very much and in advance

I would say the fonts used are not available on that host, therefore a replacement is in use. And you can see it is not really successful
