I am trying to install python package (scikits.learn) on my user directory (on a ubuntu server for which I don't have sudo permission) but I am getting

error: Python.h: No such file or directory

It may be because I don't have python-dev installed. But how can I install python-dev without sudo? OR is there any other easy way out for Python.h?

You can compile your own python from the sources, and then install any modules what you want. http://docs.python.org/devguide/
