Clean install: drush 7.x-4.4, Drupal 7.4, Chaos Tools 7.x.1.0-beta1, devel 7.x-1.0, views 7.x-1.0-rc1, FPDI 1.4.1, FPDF_TPL 1.2, tcpdf_5_9_102.
Checked admin/report/status and made sure no errors
Used devel to generate 50 nodes of random content
Created a view on the generated content, used defaults (show content teasers with links, published content ordered by post-date)
Created a display pdf on the view, only changed the path to "/test_report_pdf"
Tried view pdf page and ?q=test_report_pdf in all cases a pdf is generated but with no text.
