All my Q-Web reports (invoice, sale order, purchase, etc) are missing the css in pdf export and are all good in html export... Can anyone please help? I am running ubuntu 14.04 and wkhtmltopdf 12.01... Next is a preview of the problem on the left, and the html export with the css tables on the right... 


Hi, I want to reproduce the problem. When export and dialog save file opened. Don't immediately save the file, but check the server in /tmp. There should be some report*.html files. Can you share the files?

Ok, its solved. I had 2 diferent problems:


1 - the css must be added directly to the report

2 - The url parameter must have a :8069 at the end


Hope this helps for others.



The second options works for me

The global parameter Theo describes can be found in

Settings > Technical > Parameters > System Parameters

This can only be accessed when in 'debug' mode, add url parameter ?debug after web in your browser address bar.

You have to create a new record with

key:    report.url

value:    http://localhost:8069

Actually if you are sitting behind some kind of proxy (containerized odoo/ngix/squid etc) you need to set a global parameter 'report.url' = 'http://localhost:8069' and it will work like a charm all the time.



you are amazing man! the localhost solved the problem i have been looking to fix for the last 2 weeks!!!
