Making WkHTMLtoPDF work on Linux

wkHTMLtoPDF is a converter of HTML documents into PDF ones.

It’s really easy and simple to use. It works well on Windows operating systems.

But currently, the linux downloadable available on the website in missing a lot of needed libraries.

Here are the ones needed if you want to install it on a RedHat/CentOS/Amazon AWS instance:

– fontconfig-32bit-2.11.1-4.1.x86_64.rpm

– libjpeg62-32bit-62.1.0-35.1.x86_64.rpm

– libpng12-0-32bit-1.2.52-2.1.x86_64.rpm

– libstdc++6-32bit-4.7.2_20130108-2.1.6.x86_64.rpm

– libXext6-32bit-1.3.3-3.1.x86_64.rpm

– wkhtmltox-

– xorg-x11-libXrender-32bit-7.6_0.9.6-9.1.2.x86_64.rpm


To install each of them, just type :

sudo yum install <nameOfTheLibrary>

in the terminal

If you need other versions (like 64 bits one) of some libraries you can find them all on . Just take into account that you have better chances to find them thanks to Google than with the search engine of their website.


I wrote this post because I took an awful lot of time figuring that out, and I thought it would be useful.
