    The error is because there is some problem within the file, probably. How to solve it, well, it depends.

    Kpdf opens that file without a problem (I can't tell you if the contents will display on a entirely correct form). Besides trying another viewer, I can't suggest anything. I don't know if there's a way that the Acrobat viewer could substitute a font that is supposed to be embedded on the document itself by a external equivalent (or the same) font.

    To use any ttf font, though, you can just put it into ~/.fonts/, but I highly doubt that that will help with Acrobat.
