Can you generate a document of record on CentOS in WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)?

OS. CentOS 7 (via Windows Subsystem for Linux).

HostOS: Windows 10 .

AEM Version: 6.4.

 

Need a "PDF" button to save form as PDF. (Forms.exe won't start...likely needs Acrobat)

 

My co-worker has this working in Windows 10/AEM Forms. I can migrate to that, but looking into a solution for WSL/CentOS/headless.

 

Thanks so much,

-Joel

are you trying merge the data from form into PDF template? if yes it will work on CentOs

if you are just trying to create PDF of the form- that will not work as it  would need Acrobat on the server

I'm trying to create a PDF document populated with the data from the form (optionally editable inside the PDF).

I don't care how I get the PDF document, via Acrobat or some other way.

you should be able to use formsservice or outputservice to merge data with your pdf template
