Webkit problems

on 6/1/14, 3:40 PM 1,425 views


I have been having tremendous problems getting webkit running in OpenERP V7. I have followed all the instruction documents I could find. I have removed and re-installed numerous times and I have tried V9 and V11 RC1 of WKHTMLTOPDF. I am desperate to get it up and running as since I have uninstalled I no longer have the default partner reports in Accounting.

Currently I have WKHTMLTOPDF V9 static installed and the Financial report webkite module. I can produce reports using "Webkit Debug" but then I have no logo or header / footer. When I take debug off I get Error 127 - no diagnosis.

Please advise me if you have any information on this problem


Have you added the various webkit addons and added those to your conf file?

Have you uploaded the logo?

Are you running on windows or linux? I found version 9 worked best. you can get it from the old google code repo: https://code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf/downloads/list?can=1 

test running wkhtmltopdf from the command line to make sure that it is working. If you have problems with that try http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9604625/wkhtmltopdf-cannot-connect-to-x-server/9685072

If it is working on the command line but not in openerp, check the logs and see if there is more information. Also check the settings in Settings > Technical > Webkit logos / headers. If you install a fresh new database, does the webkit reporting work in that? 

Good luck :)
