-bash: add-apt-repository: command not found *Solution*

by on Nov.23, 2011, under Linux (Ubuntu)

Today I got add-apt-repository: command not found and I was like: Well, I already stumbled across this error message and the past and luckily I already knew the solution.


I opened up my systems terminal and typed:

apt-get install python-software-properties -y --force-yes

(or this one if you’re not logged in as root)

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties -y --force-yes

And the command add-apt-repository worked.
