Lakay, you need to install wkhtmltopdf.  Instruction here.  If you are using Ubuntu, you may be able to install it from the repository, but check whether the version that is installed from the repository is working OK (they are usually not the latest).  In my experience v0.9 or v0.11 can work with Ubuntu 12.04 - 14.04 quite well.
