Hi,

is it possible for me to install a more recent version of reportlab in my home directory? If I try to install it with 'pip-2.7 install --upgrade reportlab' or 'pip-2.7 install --upgrade --install-option="--install-scripts=$PWD/bin" --install-option="--install-lib=$PWD/lib/python2.7" reportlab' I only get a permission-denied-error.

The directory I'm in is an application-folder (/home/user/webapps/app/) and the exact error is: OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/reportlab-2.4-py2.7.egg-info'

Thanks in advance, honkadori

Please update your question with the exact error message you are getting, as well as the directory (PWD) you are running the above command from.

Do you have reportlab already installed under your home directory? If you don't, don't use the --upgrade option.

When I don't use '--upgrade' I get: Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): reportlab in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages Cleaning up...
