Hi Cody,
Well the silly thing is (now that i can see the log file again) is that its logging that it can find wkhtmltopf
2016-05-05 22:46:06,204 11997 INFO odoo Will use the Wkhtmltopdf binary at /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf

so it isnt a path issue my guess

but when printing anything ill get the page in html and the folowing message in odoo (see attachment)
Inline afbeelding 1

I have also tried to set the webkit_path in the configuration file you pointed out earlier but that didnt help.

Mr. Duijs,
      Have you tried adding it to path? I simply installed it in /opt/, created an environment script in /etc/profile.d, and Odoo hasn't had any trouble finding it.
[root@wherever]# vim /etc/profile.d/


# Adding wkhtmltopdf and wkhtmltoimage to PATH
export PATH

# Adding reference to MAN pages, because you never know
export MANPATH


[odoo@wherever ~]$ man wkhtmltopdf

It seems that i have a problem as well getting wkhtmltopdf installed properly.

i have it installed on the server (centos7):

josesapelli@wf-50-116-28-65 ~]$ wkhtmltopdf -V
wkhtmltopdf (with patched qt)

the path to the libs is in my WSGI file

i read here to add it to the odoo system parameters (done so)

restarted the server... but still not found.

any other tips?
