How to install Wkhtmltopdf package in Odoo?

This will help for Ubuntu system.
 
Once we install Odoo v8 and try to print report. WE may see notice at right hand side in black box with message.

You should upgrade your version of Wkhtmltopdf to at least 0.12.0 in order to get a correct display of headers and footers as well as support for table-breaking between pages.
   
That means Odoo v8 support the 0.12.0 or greater  than version of Wkhtmltopdf. So need to just follow the below steps:

cd /tmp
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/wkhtmltopdf/files/archive/0.12.0/wkhtmltox-linux-amd64_0.12.0-03c001d.tar.xz

tar -xvf wkhtmltox-linux-amd64_0.12.0-03c001d.tar.xz
cd wkhtmltox
cd bin/
mv wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin/

mv wkhtmltoimage /usr/bin/
cd ..
cd lib/
mv libwkhtmltox.so.0 /lib64
mv libwkhtmltox.so.0.12 /lib64
mv libwkhtmltox.so.0.12.0 /lib64

cd /usr/bin/
sudo chown root:root wkhtmlto*
cd /lib64
sudo chown root:root libwkhtmlto*
sudo chown -h root:root libwkhtmlto*

Now reboot the system using this command.

sudo reboot

After than we need to start the Odoo server, Login in database and follow the below GUI step:

Configuration -> Parameter -> Parameters Systems
Create a new record like :

    Tipe : webkit_path
    Value : /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
   
If you show above record in your Odoo System that means now everything is fine.
