    ODOO Unable to find Wkhtmltopdf on this system. Error/Bug ?

    If you are using ODOO version 8 and getting some error like –

    Unable to find Wkhtmltopdf on this system. The report will be shown in html.

    It means you need to upgrade the version of Wkhtmltopdf library on your server.

    Let me elaborate this problem first-

    As we all know, when we install ODOO-version 8 on the server, we have also install some necessary libraries too like – python-decorator, python-werkzeug and many more libraries. ” Wkhtmltopdf ” is also one of them. Now, lets come to the main problem, when we install “wkhtmltopdf” on server, using command like –

    this command install an outdated wkhtmltopdf and odoo generate a wrong pdf (with 0 byte ) and popup error saying to update to the new wkhtmltopdf. So this is not a ODOO Error, but we can say its a wkhtmltopdf issue(moreover its a version issue).

    Solution is to upgrade ” wkhtmltopdf ” to 0.12.1 like this –

    1) Download wkhtmltopdf version from WKHTMLTOPDF depending on your system arch (32 or 64 bit) –

    2) Install the downloaded package as –

    3) Copy files as –

    4) Restart Odoo server and then try again.

    That`s it !!! I hope it will help someone.
