[email protected]:~$ sudo add-apt-repository
The program 'add-apt-repository' is currently not installed. You can
install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
[email protected]:~$

add-apt-repository is not available on all Ubuntu systems by default.
The current solution is easy and is available on virtually all
installations, without the need to manually install anything. Providing
easy access to the source is essential for a open source distribution.
