Hi, I have windows server 2003 Installed openerp 7 under : C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0 Installed wkhtmltopdf “wkhtmltox-0.11.0_rc1-installer.exe ”under : C:\Program Files (x86)\wkhtmltopdf Installed Financial Reports – Webkit v. 1.0 Under System Parameters add: Key : webkit_path Value : C:\Program Files (x86)\wkhtmltopdf

But when I run the General Ledger report I get the following error: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, bool found (<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>, TypeError('coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, bool found',), <traceback object at 0x10A115A8>)

Try GreenOpenERP by buke! with wkhtmltopdf integrated.


You can install camptocamp webkit report modules or other custom modules directly upon it!



You can download example module report webkit at https://apps.openerp.com/apps/sale_order_webkit/. This module help you create a webkit report on quotation of sale order. If you want to print with format ".html", you must access to action report and enable "Webkit debug".

I'm struggling with this too.

I'd rather not install a completely different version that's supported by a single person who might quit, give up or get hit by a car, especially when I don't know what installing it does exactly since he's rather sparse with the documentation.
