I knew the answer just install the webkit module and install webkit html2pdf from here:


For example for centos 7

yum -y instal http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/wkhtmltopdf/0.12.1/wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-centos7-amd64.rpm

You may need to set the environmental variable related to webkit executable to the result of the command:

which wkhtml2pdf
