    Hello all,

    I am encountering a problem with the installation of this software in debian 8.
    In particular, when I try to install the *.deb package I get the following message

    dpkg: warning: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 40499 package 'tomtomsportsconnect':
    missing maintainer
    dpkg: warning: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/control' near line 10 package 'tomtomsportsconnect':
    missing maintainer

    Any idea what the solution to this problem can be?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best,

    Mike

    You should install firstly gstreamer libs.

    The tomtom app seems to work well for me in Ubuntu 18.04. Having said that I also get the error message about a missing maintainer. I have no idea why this happens, if anyone can shed light on this minor irritation it would be much appreciated.

    Really pleased to see Sports Connect on Linux. I was lucky it installed really easily on my desktop PC running Ubuntu 17.04.
    Getting it working on my laptop was a little more difficult as Sports Connect depends on an old version of a library that is not part of Ubuntu 17.04
    The following commands run before installing Sports Connect got things going:
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/215074266/libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/185267586/gstreamer0.10-plugins-base_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/185267581/libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i gstreamer0.10-plugins-base_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb

    Im using ubuntu 18.04 and its still working, thanks for share this solution! =)

    Hi,

    i've got problems with tomtom sport connect since i upgrade my system to Ubuntu Budgie 19.04.
    All was fine under Ubuntu Budgie 18.10 but nothing works after reinstall on 19.04.
    I have check the libgstream with Synaptic and all the libs have been updated in 19.04 and there is conflicts between old and new versions. I can't uninstall new ones because they are part of the system.

    Can someone help me ?

    Regards
    Olivier

    Just upgraded to Ubuntu 19.04. Had problems at first. Fixed from command line:
    wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl1.0/libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5_amd64.deb
    All is good again.

    Olivier,
    I had issues a while ago related to libgstream which I fixed then with the steps I listed in an earlier post. I do not know if those steps are still needed with the latest version of Tomtomsportsconnect on Ubuntu 19.04. I had no problems - possibly because I already had the changes. The only new "fix" I needed for 19.04 was "libssl1.0".
    If you still have problems please message again or contact me via computething.co.uk

    I have a second PC to upgrade so will try a fresh install on that for comparison,
    Michael

    HI!

    I just managed to install TomTom Sports Connect on Ubuntu version 18.04.

    Sports Connect starts well and asks me to connect my TomTom device, but when I connect it, nothing happens.

    Is there anything I need to do?

    Thank you so much for this! Works on 18.04.
    I am so happy. The Windows part of my dual boot just died AGAIN. So it is very fortunate that I can sync and load track on my Linux distro.

    Thanks TomTom, great work, really pleased for Linux support!
    I'm going to buy a BQ Aquaris M10 HD and install Ubuntu Touch 16.04. Hopefully the connection of my Runner 3 via USB will work!
    Maybe anybody has experience?

    Best regards Armin
