hi all,

i found the problem, although i haven't solved it (yet)

(1) in /tmp , the .html file is filled correctly, and the .pdf file is empty.
(2) upon running wkhtmltopdf manually, the .pdf file is generated correctly,
(3) but then wkhtmltopdf exits with this error:

"Exit with code 1 due to network error: ContentNotFoundError"

This problem is fonts dependency issue (times roman) not properly installed . 

Try this step . This will resolve barcode issue for qweb report. 

Download this, and extract it.

Now put all the files of this pfbfer in...

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/reportlab/fonts/(put the files)

If the fonts folder is not available in reportlab directory then create it and put all the font-files in fonts from the extract folder pfbfer.

after killing the process 9416, i see this:

-rw------- 1 odoo odoo      0 sep 26 17:03 report.tmp.0cq9ov.pdf

when i open the report.body file with my browser,
i get my report just the way i wanted it, including barcodes.

i restored wkhtmltopdf to version 0.12.1
wkhtmltopdf --version
wkhtmltopdf 0.12.1 (with patched qt)

so what could exactly be the problem?
could it be the client no longer responding?

any suggestions?
thx, R

I recently got this error on some standard accounting report that was working well until the error arised and restarting the server solved the problem.

hi all,

i get following error in reportlab when printing a barcode label :

  File "/usr/share/pyshared/reportlab/graphics/", line 221, in _setFont
    raise RenderPMError, "Can't setFont(%s) missing the T1 files?\nOriginally %s: %s" % (fontName,s1,s2)
RenderPMError: Can't setFont(Times-Roman) missing the T1 files?
Originally <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: makeT1Font() argument 2 must be string, not None

creating and filling the reportlab/fonts directory i tried, but then the odoo server hangs on the report, and won't come back unless i delete the fonts subdir and reboot the server.

to reproduce, i only need to do this:

and it gives me a 500 error.
in the odoo-error.log appears the very same error.

any suggestions would be very much welcome.
thx, Ron
