I'm trying to install Libreoffice 4.0 on Ubuntu 12.04. I try to begin with add the repository.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-0

I get this output:

sudo: apt-get-repository: command not found

Tested to run

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

Output:

I see some inconsistency there: add-apt-repository vs apt-get-repository, was that a typo or did you really get a different error? –  guntbert Apr 25 '13 at 20:34
    
Try sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa –  Mitch Apr 25 '13 at 20:35
    
Used 'apt-get-repository'. Love you! –  user152158 Apr 25 '13 at 20:38

Adding it as an answer, so this can be ticked off as the correct answer, closing this.
