yeah i have installed as a plugin . the code is in vendor folder

Have you set the exe path in the initializer? You need to tell wickedpdf
where the wkhtmltopdf binary is

Hi keerthi,

I think this issue relates to proper installation & configuration of
wicked_pdf.

Cheers,
Vijay

i think you only installed the gem. Look at
https://github.com/mileszs/wicked_pdf/wiki/Getting-Started-Installing-wkhtmltopdf
on how to install the binary

You need to be sure that your exe_path is that on file, if its not you
just
need to point out to the right place, the past year I need to do
something
like that, and I realized that my path was wrong. Hope its help.

#:exe_path => '/usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf

the fact here is here is wkhtmltopdf, I strictly recommend you to
install
through the project’s week and it will work fine.
