@Dipkatts google code service has been shut down thus the 404 error, change url to https://downloads.wkhtmltopdf.org/0.12/0.12.2/wkhtmltox-0.12.2.tar.bz2

Downloads from wkhtmltopdf.org stopped working today.

https://downloads.wkhtmltopdf.org/0.12/0.12.2/wkhtmltox-0.12.2.tar.bz2

And download.gna.org was shut down few weeks ago!

Literally when you want it can't get it that mirror is also dead.

Found another one but it's downloading at 2.67K/s.

Anyone else got another mirror to hand?

Note that the RPM CentOS 6 download is not headless and will need a display to run. Simple enough but a heads up.
