You probably need to set your pdftex and dvips to embed all the 
fonts. You can do this by using updmap to change the configuration 
file.  Once you have done this, you wouldn need to re-LaTeX the files.

updmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 yes
updmap --setoption dvipsPreferOutline yes
updmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35 yes

I think this can also be done using the configure option in i-installer.


(And in the most recent version, there is now updmap-sys etc. (See 
previous threads on this.  I haven't updated my system so I haven't 
quite absorbed all that yet...)
