apt-add-repository: command not found

When using PPA on your Linux server or computer and you need to use the "apt-add-repository" command, often times it does not come by default. To install the command, install the python-software-properties package. If this does not work, another recommended package is the software-properties-common package.

To install these packages use the below commands respectively.

 user@xynteq~$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
 user@xynteq~$ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
