Hello Everyone,

Header & footer appear only in first page. if we are using 14.04 ubuntu. 

I have used this lib on 14.04 : wkhtmltox-

If I install this lib than  header appears only on first page.

after removing this If i install via terminal using this command  sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf      than lib successfully installed but header & footer disappear at all.

It does work very well with 12.04.

How do I fix this issue? or I have to use only 12.04?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Anil,

The Wkhtmltopdf version you're using is not fully supported by Odoo. You should downgrade it to version 0.12.1.x. You can find more information about that here: https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/5177
You can install the correct version in the following way:

sudo wget http://download.gna.org/wkhtmltopdf/0.12/0.12.1/wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-trusty-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-trusty-amd64.deb
sudo cp /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin
sudo cp /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltoimage /usr/bin

P.S: this is for 64 bit. If you have a 32 bit version you should change the link to http://download.gna.org/wkhtmltopdf/0.12/0.12.1/wkhtmltox-0.12.1_linux-trusty-i386.deb


Thanks @yenthe, Solution works well. :)
