I've just chosen inkscape to edit my PDF files, it seems pretty useful, but when import some PDF files containing arabic text, they disappears, i've tried both options with (enabled and disabled ) replace PDF fonts by installed ones.

How i can convert PDF file containing arabic text successfully ?

Sounds weird.. I probably would not be of much help, but one question.. are you sure they are gone, and not only "invisible", as in same colour as background? Or that there is a layer above the text? (weird things like that happens sometimes) –  Benteh Jan 9 at 0:37
