HTML to PDF, printing page numbers

Just started using Calibre and it has been great so far. Sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere, I can't figure it out for the life of me.

I'm compiling a large HTML file then using Calibre via command line to convert it to a PDF. In order to publish it, I need the PDF to include page numbers on each page but they aren't showing. I've looked everywhere but I can't figure out how to get the page numbers to show.

Any thoughts? Below I've included the command I'm using to run Calibre.

Code:
xvfb-run ebook-convert public_html/pm4id.html public_html/pm4id.pdf --output-profile=default --smarten-punctuation --cover=public_html/Images/cover.jpg --margin-left=72 --margin-right=72 --margin-top=72 --margin-bottom=72 --pretty-print --level1-toc=//h:h1 --level2-toc=//h:h2

calibre's PDF Output engine currently has no support for generating page numbers.

I wanted to write my solution here in case anyone else needs it.

I send my pdf which was created by Calibre through pdflatex to create page numbers. Below I copied my .tex file that is being sent to pdflatex. pdf.pdf is the name of the Calibre generated pdf.

Quote:
\documentclass[8pt]{article}
\usepackage[final]{pdfpages}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}

\topmargin 70pt
\oddsidemargin 70pt

\pagestyle{fancy}
\rfoot{}
\cfoot{\Large\thepage}
\renewcommand {\headrulewidth}{0pt}
\renewcommand {\footrulewidth}{0pt}

\begin{document}
\includepdfset{page=1,pagecommand=\thispagestyle{e mpty}}
\includepdf{pdf.pdf}
\includepdfset{pages=2-,pagecommand=\thispagestyle{fancy}}
\includepdf{pdf.pdf}
\end{document}
This tex file will place a page number on the center of each page. It will also ignore the first page (mine is a cover image that does not need a page number).

The command I used is here:
Quote:
pdflatex -output-directory=directory {tex file name}
