in thread HTML and SVG to PDF

Hello, Thank you for your idea, i think the same that you, if something is done and it works good, why should you do again? Securely you'll do something worse. The problem is that my computer only has installed Windows, i can't run Linux, and i have no permission to install programs, i think that html2ps it's a good alternative, but i have to install the program imagemagick to work it together and i can't because i haven't got enough privileges, so i don't know how can i do that, because the module that i've found to write a PDF are low level, and they are very complicated to use. I hope to find something... Thank you anyway

    Go, ask the admin ;-)

    Seriously, the tools mentioned here don't have to be installed. fop is a java program that can simply be copied to somewhere in the file system you have access to. I don't know for sure, but i think you can simply copy and use the other tools too. (except for imagemagick which comes with a installer iirc.)

    sidenote: is this a task at your workplace? if so, you really should talk to your boss and explain what you need, so he/she can tell the sysadmins to install that.

    Here's a memorable line from Zaxo, in reply to a poster with a similar problem

    . . . without using any module.
    Who is handicapping you in this way? Do they have any stake in the result?
