Installation of python-pptx package on xsede

Combination View Flat View Tree View
Threads [ Previous | Next ]
Dear forum,

Recently I need to use the bigger storage space of xsede to execute my project, part of which is to read in *.pptx files and segment it to sentences.

I can easily install the python package python-pptx on my linux box but not on
stampede due to write permission for the lxml library stage.

Is there a preinstalled package that can read in pptx file and output text in some language on stampede I can use?
If not how can I install the python-pptx software on stampede on my user directory only?

Many Thanks!
