dompdf/dompdf v0.7.0 requires ext-gd * -> the requested PHP extension gd is missing from your system

Problem 1
    - dompdf/dompdf v0.7.0 requires ext-gd * -> the requested PHP extension gd is missing from your system.
    - barryvdh/laravel-dompdf v0.7.0 requires dompdf/dompdf ^0.7 -> satisfiable by dompdf/dompdf[v0.7.0].
    - Installation request for barryvdh/laravel-dompdf ^0.7.0 -> satisfiable by barryvdh/laravel-dompdf[v0.7.0].


If you are working in PHP version 5.* then you have to install

sudo apt-get install php5-gd
And if you are working in PHP version 7.* then you have to install

sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd

Hope it will work..


Upgrade to PHP 7.0 on Ubuntu

Ref :

Prerequisites and disclaimer

My server is a Ubuntu 14.04 box that uses Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.5.9 prior to upgrade. These instructions are for Apache 2.4 users with a similar configuration, and I recommend you test in isolation before using in a production environment. Proceed at your own risk.

Step 1 – Add a new Apt source

At the time of writing, I’m using the packages maintained by a guy called Ondřej Surý (he’s worth a follow on Twitter) until there’s a Debian package for PHP 7 in the official release channels.

To do this, enter the following command into the box you’re upgrading:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php

You’ll probably be prompted to enter your password at this point. Go ahead and enter it.

Step 2 – Install updates and the PHP 7.0 package

Next we’re going to update and upgrade packages on our system to ensure everything goes smoothly. You can do this in a single command with:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Once this has finished, we’re ready to install PHP 7.0. Enter the following command into your terminal:

sudo apt-get install php7.0 php7.0-mysql libapache2-mod-php7.0 php7.0-mcrypt php7.0-curl

This will install PHP 7.0, along with a number of commonly used PHP packages including the Apache PHP 7 module. I found that everything else pretty much worked without being installed separately. That’s it pretty much. You shouldn’t need to make any configuration changes and everything should just work.

Step 3 – Test to ensure your server is using PHP 7.0

From the command line, type the following command:

php -v
