Two more issues on new Devuan 4 install

I'm trying to add the ppa for inxi sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unit193/inxi but I keep getting this:

Ron@Ron:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unit193/inxi
[sudo] password for Ron: 
sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

It worked on ascii; don't know why it's not working on 4.0.

The other issue is that when I open a sound app (Audacity, SMPlayer, start up sound) I'm getting an annoying POP sound. It just pops when you open the app. After that it's okay. Any ideas on this?

[I'm still having the screen tearing issue mentioned in my other post.]

Hi,

from a quick look in order to get the use of add-apt-repository you need to apt install software-properties-common

PPAs are not compatible with Devuan and can break it completely.

See https://wiki.debian.org/CreatePackageFromPPA for an alternative method (but not for inxi, as rolfie notes).
