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/' near line 10 package 'tomtomsportsconnect':
missing maintainer

Any idea what the solution to this problem can be?

Thanks in advance!



You should install firstly gstreamer libs.

There is now a Linux®️ version of TomTom Sports Connect. It has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04. I just published the FAQ with a download link:

I've jut intalled it on UBUNTU 18.04 and it works absolutely fine. Thank tomtom.
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:
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! 🙂
