Code:
sam@farcry:~$ dpkg -S add-apt-repository
python-software-properties: /usr/bin/add-apt-repository
python-software-properties: /usr/share/man/man1/add-apt-repository.1.gz
Code:
sam@farcry:~$ sudo apt-get install apt-file
sam@farcry:~$ apt-file update
sam@farcry:~$ apt-file search add-apt-repository
python-software-properties: /usr/bin/add-apt-repository
python-software-properties: /usr/share/man/man1/add-apt-repository.1.gz
I would say you need to install the python-software-properties package in 12.04. Usually it comes installed by default.

Code:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

This is going to sound retarded, but did you check the spelling and did you use sudo? In the title you spelled it wrong, and the command might not be recognized if you're not logged into root or using sudo.
