NAME

       add-apt-repository    -    Adds   a   repository   into   the   /etc/apt/sources.list   or
       /etc/apt/sources.list.d or removes an existing one

SYNOPSIS

       add-apt-repository [OPTIONS] REPOSITORY

DESCRIPTION

       add-apt-repository  is  a  script  which  adds  an  external  APT  repository  to   either
       /etc/apt/sources.list or a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ or removes an already existing
       repository.

       The options supported by add-apt-repository are:

       -h, --help Show help message and exit

       -m, --massive-debug Print a lot of debug information to the command line

       -r, --remove Remove the specified repository

       -y, --yes Assume yes to all queries

       -k, --keyserver Use a custom keyserver URL instead of the default

       -s, --enable-source Allow downloading of the source packages from the repository

REPOSITORY STRING

       REPOSITORY can be either a line that can be added directly to sources.list(5), in the form
       ppa:<user>/<ppa-name> for adding Personal Package Archives, or a distribution component to
       enable.

       In the first form, REPOSITORY will just be appended to /etc/apt/sources.list.

       In the second form, ppa:<user>/<ppa-name> will be expanded to the full deb line of the PPA
       and  added  into a new file in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory.  The GPG public key
       of the newly added PPA will also be downloaded and added to apt's keyring.

       In the third form, the given distribution component will be enabled for all sources.
