Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Okay, so it seems like the problem is a great library for generating PDF files with PHP.
So almost true...

@landroni Oh, didn't realize you weren't the OP. I posted an answer below. It works fine for me but a few of my friends are having issues. Let me know if it doesn't work for you. I'm working on a better way as we speak.

comment is there any way I can run Linux commands in the web?
I'm actually going to reopen this because the "master" question is asking almost exclusively about browser based ssh clients and it seems most of the answers center around that.

@Gilles IMO "requires root" and the hard coded user are pretty silly nitpicks, but I will add a cron solution later for the sake of completeness if you think it is that important. I'm pretty this works under GDM but I will double check.

@Techdroid I looked into the wallpaper thing real quick.. If you run gsettings reset com.canonical.unity-greeter draw-user-backgrounds and reboot does it change anything? If not, are you using a custom wallpaper (i.e. not a default one) if so, is the file read only?
