How to install wkhtmltoimage in 64 bit amd debian ?

I tried

wget http://wkhtmltopdf.googlecode.com/files/wkhtmltopdf-0.9.9-static-amd64.tar.bz2
tar xvjf wkhtmltopdf-0.9.9-static-amd64.tar.bz2
mv wkhtmltopdf-amd64 /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf

This installed only wkhtmltopdf , not wkhtmltoimage.

I tried also to load


but this file does not exists.

I looked into downloads page


and opened debian deb file. Archiever shows that file contains only single binary:

deb contents

It looks like wkhtmltoimage is not included.

If windows package from this location is installed it installs both wkhtmltoimage and wkhtmltopdf.

How to install wkhtmltoimage also in Debian x64 ?

If you think that's too difficult, I recommend to upgrade your Squeeze machine to Wheezy, but that may have a lot of impact on the system. There are precompiled packages that contain wkhtmltoimage for wheezy, however. You can find them here:
