Keep on mind that any font used in the reports should be installed in the OpenKM server. For example, if you are using Arial (sample provided reports use this font) you should ensure Arial font is installed. For example, if you are using Ubuntu the package to install is ttf-mscorefonts-installer.
$ apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
In RedHat or CentOS the package is msttcore-fonts. You need to restart the server after this package is installed.
