Quality differences between distributions when usind pdfserver in Splunk.

Explorer

Hi

I have installed the pdfserver 1.2 on a SLES10 SP2 box and an Ubuntu 10.04 box. Both installations are running Splunk 4.6.

On Ubuntu the whole PDF is of a good quality, but on SLES the headers and footers look fine, but the 'screen scraped' Splunk reports are of a far lower quality.

Where should I be looking to change this quality setting?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I got it working.

I believe I was missing the fonts-config package in SLES.

Below is a list of pacakges I installed trying to make it work - I'm sure not all of them are required.
