But i don't want to see another repository

You will need to put this files with this following structure, this need to be done because nuget cant copy those files, only puts a link with the full path and will only work on your computer.

The structure will need to be on the folder of your project

    .
    ├── Example
    |   ├── Example.csproj
    |   └── Rotativa
    |   |   ├── Linux
    |   |   |   └── wkhtmltopdf
    |   |   ├── Mac
    |   |   |   └── wkhtmltopdf
    |   |   └── Windows
    |   |       └── wkhtmltopdf.exe
    └── Example.sln

Those files will need to be included in your project with the propierty "Copy Always", then add to your Startup.cs in ConfigureServices method, this line "services.AddWkhtmltopdf();", like this

    // This method gets called by the runtime. Use this method to add services to the container.
    public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    {            
        services.AddControllers();
        services.AddWkhtmltopdf();
    }

If you are using the docker container for net core provided from microsoft, you need to add this line to the dockerfile "RUN apt-get update -qq && apt-get -y install libgdiplus libc6-dev", like this

    FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/aspnet:3.1-buster-slim AS base
    WORKDIR /app
    RUN apt-get update -qq && apt-get -y install libgdiplus libc6-dev
    EXPOSE 80

In linux you also need to install the same libraries used in the dockerfile, they are libgdiplus, libc6-dev
