I tried accessing the website but I got the message that it doesn't exist.

Anyways, it sounds like they pdf is using fonts that aren't installed on your computer for ubuntu. It is difficult to know what fonts they are if I can't see the document. However, there is a way to transfer truetype fonts from windows to ubuntu.

Www.vallalar.org i cant under stand transfer of fonts between windows and ubuntu.

Just install the original pdf reader. it's available on their website. It will work in exactly the same way as on Windows computer.

Did you use default document reader to view the file?

Thanks marcus aurelius, that solved my question.
