Launch Software Sources from the command-line

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 !!
    here is why : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#Graphical_sudo

    and why : http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo
