Installation failure due to wkthmltox

Hello everybody!

I just tried installing ERPNext following these instructions, but the installer is crashing.

It looks like the URL of the wkthmltox package is timing out and the installer collapses. How could I circumvent this issue? Are there alternative URLs for this package? I found this one, for example. Assuming it’s legitimate, how could I use it instead? Or… is there another route to get this package installed?

I’m running this on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04.2 x64.

sudo python --production

Hi, sorry for this and thanks for reporting the issue. It looks like the links for downloading wkhtmltopdf (with patched Qt) have changed.

You can manually install it for now: wkhtmltopdf

We will actively resolve this issue.
