Error: spawn pdftk ENOENT


#1

I’m trying to deploy to an Ubuntu 16.04 server with the mup setup/mup deploy
Before I had the pdftk required it was working fine on the online server,
Now that I added this, I’m getting an error:

[139.162.133.79]=> Starting meteor app on port:80
[139.162.133.79]events.js:141

Anyone have any clue as to how I could fix this. Note: the meteor app works on my mac machine. And I have the pdftk installed on the server. Ant it works as expected on the server itself.

Any help would be great.

Any possible solution on this? We encountered the same issue on galaxy server.

Yes, basically you need to install the pdftk on the server. At least that was my silly problem :slight_smile:
