Sure, what kind of font are you using?
If it is a commercial font which is marked as "dont embed", Adobe 
Reader might decide to honour that flag and ignore it even if it is 
Try "subset font" as PDF export option in Scribus. ATM Scribus will 
convert the chars to outlines, so the "don't embed" flag is lost.
