Ubuntu sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

When i install OpenBravo CRM on Ubuntu server, i get following error.

root@cloud2:~# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openbravo-isv/ppa
sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

This is fixed by installing “python-software-properties” package.

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common python-software-properties

OpenBravo is a ERP/CRM software like OpenERP (oDoo ?). OpenBravo is Java based, it need TomCat, Apache, PostgreSQL installed. On my test installation OpenJDK itself was using 3 GB of RAM.
