To install on kraken in my home directory I'd do:
ssh kraken.sharcnet.ca module load python wget http://cutadapt.googlecode.com/files/cutadapt-1.2.1.tar.gz tar -xvzf cutadapt-1.2.1.tar.gz cd cutadapt-1.2.1 python setup.py build bin/cutadapt --version
This last command should return "1.2.1".
Note that you'll have to load the python module every time you want to use cutadapt - you can add that line to your ~/.bashrc to ensure it is loaded every time you log into the systems.
