Hi, First of all very Happy New Year-2019 to each and everyone. Today, I am going to post my first article of this year. I hope it will help people.

Today's post is about Wkhtmltopdf error for odoo12. Even after you install Wkhtmltopdf you may encounter this error if you are not installing the compatible version needed for odoo12.


Odoo version: Odoo 12.0 (Community Edition)



Error:

For Wkhtmltopdf compatible versions please follow the link: https://github.com/odoo/odoo/wiki/Wkhtmltopdf

For different Wkhtmltopdf verions: https://builds.wkhtmltopdf.org/0.12.1.3/



Solution steps:

sudo wget https://builds.wkhtmltopdf.org/0.12.1.3/wkhtmltox_0.12.1.3-1~bionic_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i wkhtmltox_0.12.1.3-1~bionic_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltoimage /usr/bin
apt-get install -f will install the missing dependencies, which are shown as errors by the dpkg command.

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!! Enjoy Programming!! :) Reference Links: =================================== https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/odoo-cache-and-updating-qweb-templates-84492

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field. You can achieve it in following two ways : 1) using many2one field in both the objects ( http://tutorialopenerp.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/one2one/ ) 2)  using inheritance by deligation You can easily find the first solution with little search over internet so let's start with 2nd solution.
