I'm running ununtu 11.04 and the Thunderbird email version 3.1.15 installed by the software center. I gather that the current version of Thunderbird is 7.0.1. I just tried to install the Thunderbird addon for Lightning Calendar, however, the versions are not compatible. Is there an easy way to update ? I'm thinking there should be something in the update manager Thunderbird, but if is there, I'm missing it. I can't check again, because I seem to have hung the update manage window. and don't want to lose this post.
Ironically Thunderbird and Lightning are running just fine on my XP PC. I'll try on Windows 7 and report back.
Easiest way to upgrade Thunderbird 3.1.15 to 7.0.1 in ubuntu?
... also if I'm not on the right track, please let me know.

Just found this thread so maybe I should get a new ubuntu disk, but still curious about the upgrade
Recently updated to 11.10 and one change is that thunderbird has replaced evolution (a good thing), but how do you get the same integration with gnome's calendar with thunderbird as evolution had? Where stored tasks/meetings in thunderbird's lightning extension show up in gnome's drop down calendar (upper right corner)
