Render Report on Linux with .NET Core?

Post by ednt » Thu Feb 27, 2020 10:50 am

Hello,
is it possible to render and export a report as pdf on a linux server with the nuget package Stimulsoft.Reports.Engine.NetCore?
Is it generally possible to render and export a report on linux?

At the moment we get the error:

Unable to load shared library 'gdi32.dll'

A dll on Linux is not the right lib format ;)

Hello,

You should install libgdiplus library on your linux server.

Thank you.

Hello,
We have libgdiplus installed on our server.
But we get this error:

Hello,

Please, check the next option. It should be disabled.

Code: Select all

StiOptions.Export.Pdf.AllowImportSystemLibraries

Hello,
first thank you for your reply!
Yes now it works under linux, but we have an other problem, now.
We create the reports with our stimulsoft-app under windows, but if we send them via email we render the report under linux.
But now the Fonts are false.
The question is: How can i store the fonts in the reports in our windows-client and use them under linux to render the report?

Hello,

You can add fonts in the report resources or in font collection by the code:
Stimulsoft.Base.StiFontCollection.AddFontFile("font.ttf");

Thank you.
