Ubuntu 14.04: add-apt-repository – command not found

The tradational command to a PPA repository was to use add-apt-repository but in 14.04 the command is not always part of the default OS install.

To fix this just install software-properties-common python-software-properties
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common python-software-properties

add-apt-repository not found
