The problem might due to the misspell of the exec command pdf2htmlEX, with the last two letters mistakenly spelled in lower case.

Hi,Buddy When I run the latest docker I found the following error. Any ideas why?
docker: Error response from daemon: invalid header field value "oci runtime error: container_linux.go:247: starting container process caused \"exec: \\"--zoom\\": executable file not found in $PATH\"\n".

Thanks bro! it was quite difficult to build from source. And the resultant image was 1.2GB!! Saved us lot of pain.
