    Lightning calendar doesn't show events in Thunderbird

    I thought I'd ask since others must be having the same problem. I've tried twice on a fresh install of 64-bit ubuntu with Lightning/1.0b2 on Thunderbird/3.1.10. The lightning calendar works fine at first, but within a day it quits working completely. No events show up on the calendar, I get no reminders, if I create a new event, it doesn't show up, etc. The calendar is 100% empty and never gives any reminders. Has anybody been able no resolve this?

    Where did you download your version of Lightning from?
    Mine works perfectly, but I didn't use the one from "add ons"

    My ubuntu is 64-bit, and when I tried to install the one from add-ons it told me my os/thunderbird were incompatible. I had to download it from the 1.0b2 link here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ThunderbirdLightning

    I just uninstalled Thunderbird, put on a 32-bit deb, and installed the latest-and-greatest 32-bit lightning. Still nothing. Although, the 32-bit thunderbird knew all my old information which may be what's messing it up. How can you completely kill thunderbird and all the info it has saved?

    That did it. Now my calendar is working again. We'll see if it stays. For reference, here are the steps I took in 64-bit ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get purge thunderbird
    rm -rf ~/.thunderbird
    wget http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/pro...untu1_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i --force-all thunderbird-mozilla-build_3.1-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

    Can i just ask. Why did you use Thunderbird from sourceforge, instead of the one from the repos?
