in thread Redirect output of the system() command

It's not a system() problem so the qx// doesn't help too. The called program (wkhtmltopdf) just eat all arguments and don't rest anything to the shell.

    You never invoked a shell because you didn't pass a shell command to system

    You want

    system('sh' => ( '-c' => '"$@" >/dev/null 2>&1', '--', $config->{wkhtmltopdf_path}, @options, $source_file, $config->{result_filename}, ));

    This approach handles spaces and other special characters in file names and options.

      Same error as before (I'm sure wkhtmltopdf just grab all arguments): Error: Failed loading page http: (sometimes it will work just to ignore this error with --load-error-handling ignore)
