Stringifier dependencies - how to install on a hosted server?

Stringifier recognises the lack of certain document handlers in my installation. This is the log file I get:

CPAN is disabled, disabling CPAN

I will keep a backup of any files I overwrite.Archive has already been unpacked.

### Installation finished ###

I am installed on a hosted webserver so do not have access to install anything to var/usr (or whatvever) on the host.

I am a Linux noob and have no idea how and where to install the following to get Stringifier to work:

pphtml

pdftotext

antiword

abiword

wvWare

docx2txt

pptx2txt

Any help warmly welcomed!

Maybe try pointing the Stringifier to a script which calls antiword instead of antiword itself. The script might look like (untested):
#!/bin/bash
export ANTIWORDHOME = /path/to/antiword/home
/path/to/antiword/home/./antiword $@

Please set back to "Asked" if that doesn't help
