As Tadziu says this pdf works fine if the pdf viewer uses a font which contains 
glyph, but it seems that your ubuntu is choosing a font which does not contain 
glyph. You could try:-

fc-match Times-Roman

To find out what font okular/evince are aliasing to Times-Roman, and compare 
this with 
the older ubuntu.
