An extension for TAO to create test booklets (publishable in MS-Word and PDF along with Answer Sheets)


This extension needs a third-party tool to generate the PDF files. So to be able to generate the booklet, you should install wkhtmltopdf on your server.

If you are using Ubuntu you can use these commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf

However, depending of the version of your system, the installed version of wkhtmltopdf may not fully comply with the requirements, as there is some issues with QT when trying to render header and footers. If you encounter errors when generating the document, you should install the tool using these commands:

sudo dpkg -i wkhtmltox_0.12.5-1.jessie_amd64.deb

after that you can use /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf in your configuration

Deprecated: Please note that the version 0.12.4 has a bug which was fixed in the version 0.12.5: sometimes footers and headers not provided in the pdf

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libxrender1 fontconfig xvfb
wget -P /tmp/
cd /usr/share/
sudo tar xf /tmp/wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz
sudo rm /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
sudo ln -s /usr/share/wkhtmltox/bin/wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
