You need to install wkhtmltox-0.12.1

wkhtmltox- formating has issue and we should stick to the wkhtmltox-0.12.1until a new release is out.

I suggest upon installing try to run your server on CLI

either by

# ./openerp-server --config=<your config file>


# ./odoo.py --config=<your config file>

And you should see a similar log entry below.

2015-07-13 17:37:36,001 129586 INFO &lt;your db instance> openerp.addons.report.models.report: Will use the Wkhtmltopdf binary at /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf 

This indicates that your wkhtmltopdf package is installed properly and could be found.

i tried wkhtmltox-0.12.1 but its always ths same error

Please paste the complete error message from server log, the version of Wkhtmltopdf you are using and in what platform (linux version or windows version).

Wkhtmltopdf must be at least version 0.12.0 for Odoo. To see what version you have do a 

wkhtmltopdf -V

from a console.

if you using report-rtl then edit addons/report_rtl/models/report.py file in line 90 to be something like this 

command_args = ['--load-error-handling','ignore']

save & restart odoo
