    Exclamation add-apt-repository not installed

    Hi all

    I just upgraded my 9.04-server to 9.10-server (amd64) and want to add the Wine-repository back to the repositories list.

    I am supposed to do this using the add-apt-repository command.

    When I try this I get
    Code:
    sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found
    When I do a search with whereis, it turns out there is no add-apt-repository command on the machine.
    Whereis can find e.g. the apt-get command in the /usr/bin-directory, but the add-apt-repository command is not there.

    How can I have this command installed?
    And how can I verify there aren't any other bits-and-pieces missing after this upgrade?

    I don't know about 64 bit, but on 32 bit, add-apt-repository is provided by the package python-software-properties.

    You could always add the repository to /etc/apt/sources.list manually.

    That did the trick, thank you.

    The solution is to install python-software-properties:

    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
