I am attempting to add some external packages to Ubuntu 12.10 from a PPA. To do so, I need to use
add-apt-repository. Easy enough - add-apt-repository: command not found in Ubuntu 10.04 tells me to install
python-software-properties. I have done that - here's proof that it is already there:
user@hostname:~$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done python-software-properties is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 58 not upgraded.
Yet, I still don't have
user@hostname:~$ sudo add-apt-repository sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found user@hostname:~$ add-apt-repository The program 'add-apt-repository' can be found in the following packages: * python-software-properties * software-properties-common Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
What (obvious?) thing am I missing?
