Installation on Ubuntu precise

Greetings Everyone!

When I try to install bench using the setup script, it gives the following error.

Installing for Ubuntu precise x86

This is on Ubuntu-12.04.5-desktop-i386 on VMWare 11.0.0.

Can anyone please suggest how to correct it?


It seems that the script is breaking. Will update when it’s fixed.

Can you try using 14.04? It’s latest LTS.

EDIT: Tested on 12.04 as well, worked; could be a temp problem with wkhtmltopdf packages.

Thanks worked like a charm!

EDIT: Tried on 14.04…
