Did you use a personalized email template or the standard one coming with the social app? I am encountering serious difficulties with the personalized templates, even with any minor change

Hi taco, did you install the wkhtmltopdf?

if not means please install by using:

sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf

If apt install wkhtmltopdf not, you need to download the installation package dpkg ans store it in /usr/local/bin/

and also refer this link for a video demo:
