Type 3 fonts not OK error on submitting PDF

Problem

Certain online submission services check the fonts used in the submitted PDF file. Many of them allow only Type 1 and TrueType fonts in the PDF. Type 3 fonts which may not scale well in printing are not allowed. I got the error shown in the screenshot above when I tried submitting to one such website.

Solution

The PDF file regenerated from these files passed the font checks 😊

Tried with: Ubuntu 14.04
