Using Ubuntu 18.04.1 (AMD 64bit) and LO and LO 6.2Beta1 (en_US local and en_US language)

Was unable to reproduce the anomaly. 

I used the command line ./soffice --headless --convert-to pdf --outdir ./ /home/drew/Downloads/QA/121966/test.pptx

In both cases 6.1 and 6.2 I get the same output as if I had opened in the GUI and exported (which I did also) and all of the pdf files include the correct characters.

It was due to missing font in Ubuntu. `apt-get install fonts-umefonts` solved the problem. Thanks for the help.

I take it then closing this issue as not a bug is correct.
