Webkit works with workers = 1 but doesn't work with workers > 1 - using version wkhtmltopdf 0.12.1 (with patched qt)

With the Odoo configuration file set to user workers > 1, PDF creation breaks.

  I get Error: Odoo Warning - Warning: Wkhtmltopdf failed (error code: -11).  

  • Webkit installed is wkhtmltopdf 0.12.1 (with patched qt) on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS


  • lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 May 6 19:31 wkhtmltoimage -> /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltoimage

  • lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 May 6 19:30 wkhtmltopdf -> /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf

  • PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin for user who is running Odoo service

  • Nothing in /var/syslog

  • limit_memory_hard = 524288000 in configuration.

What else can I try?
