    Question Thunderbird + Lightning + Google + Lucid = No Calendar

    I have TBird 3.1, Lightning 1.02b, Provider for Google Calendar 0.71 installed on lucid. Mail works fine. I entered the XML for the gcal location, but I see no calendar events.

    Tried deleting and re-creating the entry. No change.

    Why doesn't the data from the Google calendar load? Clicking on Reload Remote Calendars has no effect.

    Are you using the public or private xml ?
    try the private one as it gives read/write access.

    hope this helps

    Same problem here.

    I'm using the right XML, I can see all events when I visit the URL using Firefox. Some events are missing in Thunderbird (the last one to be exact). When I reload the calendar using "Right click on the calendar" > "Reload remote calendars", nothing append. Even restarting Thunderbird itself do not help.

    I'm using Ubuntu Maverick

    Re: Thunderbird + Lightning + Google + Lucid = No Calendar

    I think I have an explanation.

    The only event that do not show up in my calendar has the following entry in the XML file:
    Replaces event originally scheduled for: ...

    This is the only event with this entry. I think Thunderbird do not handle rescheduling very well. I fixed my problem by accepting the event and making a duplication of it using the Web interface on the Calendar in GMail.
