This is for Windows:

  1. First, download and install wkhtmltopdf for your version of windows (32 bit or 64 bit).
  2. Once it's installed, go to Openerp/odoo and go to Settings> Users and click on your user
  3. Click edit and scroll down and look for "Technical Features" is enabled / checked.
  4. Click Apply, then log out of Odoo and then login
  5. Go to Settings again and now you should see several new technical menu items on the left
  6. Go to Settings -> Customization -> Parameters -> System Parameters
  7. Click Add and for Key insert : webkit_path
  8. For value insert: C:\Progra~1\wkhtmltopdf\bin\wkhtmltopdf.exe
  9. Apply and exit and restart Windows.
  10. After you do the above steps, go to System  in Control Panel.
  11. Click on Advanced Settings. The System Properties window will pop up.
  12. In the "Advanced" Tab, Click on "Environment Variables"
  13. In the "System variables", scroll down until you find the "Path" variable and double click. !!!!!NOT user variables
  14. inside the "Variable value" field, add this to the end: ;C:\Program Files\wkhtmltopdf\bin
  15. Click OK and then reboot your system.

Eaither you installed your wkhtmltopdf from repository (and got version 0.9 ) or did not install it at all.. 
If installed from repo, you have to remove it first (apt-get purge wkhtmltopdf ) and then install from source or better yet.. 
from python pip... (if you don't have it: apt-get install python-pip on ubuntu servers) 
and then : pip install wkhtmltopdf 

Ubuntu official repos still holds version 0.9
odoo reporting needs at least version 0.12
pip install version 2.0 (if no version is specified) 


hope it helps..
