I am working on a system where Splunk is being to create various dashboards of traffic data over time. Splunk is installed and being used in Linux systems The management team wanted PDF version of a few dashboards e-mailed to them. Using the Generate PDF report I was able to create the PDF and e-mail it. The graphs shows up correctly for the simple XML based dashboard. But, in the advanced XML dashboard when the e-mail is sent the PDF file has just a table of the text showing instead of the graphs. The first couple of lines from the PDF report are shown below -

Am I missing some steps to make Advance XML driven dashboards to generate the right PDF reports?

I've had issues similar to this. I tried different browsers and had success in Firefox. If you are having issues try switching browsers and seeing if it makes a difference.
