Hello Guys
I am using rails 3.2.8 and wickedpdf.

error.

"***************\"/var/www/apps/staging/shared/bundle/ruby/1.9.1/bin/wkhtmltopdf\"

I presume that you have checked that
/var/www/apps/staging/shared/bundle/ruby/1.9.1/bin/wkhtmltopdf exists.
Or is that the wrong path?

Yes Colin Law. The path is wrong. now i corrected under

config/initializers/wicked_pdf.rb

WickedPdf.config = {

:exe_path => ‘/usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf’

}

Thanks for the reply :slight_smile:

Also using the gem ‘wkhtmltopdf_binary’ will do the trick. you would no longer need to create config/initializers/wicked_pdf.rb.
