What wkhtmltox affects

  • Installs a version specific installation of wkhtmltox/pdf to your system
  • Shouldn't break anything, but do make sure you don't have a system repo install of 'whtmltopdf' as they might conflict.


puppet module install jlondon-wkhtmltox

Also supports inclusion in librarian-puppet

Usage of the module is pretty basic and shouldn't need much other than a default run:

class { 'wkhtmltox':
  ensure => present,


Only tested to work with Debian wheezy, Ubuntu precise/trusty or centos 5/6.
