These symbols are not defined by default in LaTeX: you have to load some additional packages. I think adding

\usepackage{marvosym}
\usepackage{amssymb}

begore \begin{document} should be sufficient. Note that LaTeX commands are case sensitive: you have to type \CheckedBox and \XBox. Furthermore, \blacksquare is only valid in mathematic environment: type
$\blacksquare$

Try to install the texlive-fonts-recommended package (see Ubuntu search page).

i sloved the problem by added:

\usepackage{amssymb}
into the head

\newcommand{\tickYes}{\checkmark}
$\tickYes$
\newcommand{\tickno}{\times}
$\tickno$
\newcommand{\tickblk}{\blacksquare}
$\tickblk$

inside the document.

sorry this is the best:

\usepackage{amssymb} % into the head

the past this in any line:

\mbox{\mathsurround=0pt \makebox[0pt][l]{$\checkmark$}$\square$}
\mbox{\mathsurround=0pt \makebox[0pt][l]{$\times$}$\square$}
\mbox{\mathsurround=0pt \makebox[0pt][l]{$\blacksquare$}$\square$}
