How can I add the PPA on elementaryOS Loki

How Can I Add PPA's on elementaryOS Loki
Hi guys, welcome back to Ask MHS. In this tutorial we will discuss about how can we add PPA's on elementaryOS. As we know, since elementaryOS Loki released we couldn't add PPA's by default, so we have to install some dependency to make us can add PPA's. But before we discuss about it, it's better for us to know what PPA is.

What's PPA?

A Personal Package Archive (PPA) is a special software repository for uploading source packages to be built and published as an APT repository by Launchpad.[1] While the term is used exclusively within Ubuntu, Launchpad host Canonical envisions adoption beyond the Ubuntu community.

How can we add PPA's on elementaryOS

To make us can add PPA's on elementaryOS, we have to install software-properties-gtk dependency.
1. Open your Terminal (Super+T)
2. Type sudo apt-get install software-properties-gtk
3. Press Enter and type your password and Enter again
4. Wait until the processes are completed


Now it's time to test it. In this case I wanna add PPA for elementaryOS Tweak that this Tweak is compatible for elementaryOS Loki.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
So now we have successfully add PPA on elementaryOS.

Alright guys, that's all about how we can adding PPA on elementaryOS. Thankyou very much vor visit my blog and see you later on the next tutorial.
