I am trying to install php5-fpm on Debian 6.0.5 and after trying to install php5-fpm:

E: couldn't find package php5-fpm

Ok, so I tried to add non official repository:

add-apt-repository ppa:l-mierzwa/lucid-php5

But it says:

add-apt-repository command not found

What can I do now?

After about twelve seconds of searching for the answer, it turns out that the Dotdeb repository has the packages you want.

Here are the instructions on how to use it.
