Launch Software Sources from the command-line ubuntu and variants

Categories:  linux
Labels:  terminal, OS

The problem: Canonical started to integrate everything in the Ubuntu Software Center. Software Sources is available from this, but how to launch it from the command-line?

Solution

$ gksudo software-properties-gtk

Don’t use sudo with graphic applications!
Use gksu or gksudo instead !!
