Without ttf-dejavu wkhtmltopdf generate broken pdf. Example: On my server i had to install ttf manually after installing wkhtmltopdf-static

@gkrukar, could you please describe the problem?

Hello I had small problem with this package it was resolved by installing ttf-dejavu. Could you add ttf font to dependencies?

Thanks for the heads up, dcelasun. I have switched the package to use static builds for Ubuntu Bionic Beaver.

Thank you for the heads up, I have updated these.

The source URLs in the PKGBUILD no longer work ( times out), and the project's download page now links to files on GitHub. Can the PKGBUILD please be updated?

For what it's worth, these messages can be somewhat suppressed by forcing wkhtmltopdf to use the old openssl-1.0 (now packaged in /usr/lib/openssl-1.0/ by package openssl-1.0) with LD_LIBRARY_PATH

On my usage, the QSslSocket errors are output to stderr, and I'm still able to use "wkhtmltopdf - -" with pipes for input/output (Python subprocess)

Can you provide more details?

The QSslSocket error messages are printed to the standard output, not standard error, breaking use use of "-" for output file.
