Tips for Other Packages

Dividni & Other Packages

wkhtmltopdf on Ubuntu

wkhtmltopdf as installed via apt-get from the normal package repository may be missing a qt patch, which prevents the printing of headers and footers.

Workaround: Install from the packages at using wget and dpkg -i on the command line. E.g.:


dpkg -i wkhtmltox_0.12.5-1.bionic_amd64.deb

If dpkg complains about missing dependencies, install these with apt-get. E.g.:

apt-get install xfonts-75dpi

pdftk on MacOS

The MacOS 10.6 package downloadable at PDFLabs does not work with MacOS 10.11 and above. Install instead linked to from StackOverflow.
