    New install and problems with Calender

    Hi, please forgive me if I have this wrong, havent used the forums for a long time, and things have changed since I last came on here.

    I just installed lubuntu onto my lenovo 64bit laptop, via synaptic, the installation went really well, and I found the lubuntu netbook version which I must admit I really like. My problem is I cannot get Lightening to work in Thunderbird, even though I have it working fine in Ubuntu 12.04.....I even tried to install it it shows its installed but in preferences there is no sign on it.

    How can I get my calender back. Thanks

    Lightning is an add-on to Thunderbird. Have you installed Lubuntu over Ubuntu or did you install it side by side with Lubuntu? Oh yes, one other option, did you install the LXDE inside of Ubuntu?
    An installation of Thunderbird will require you to install the add-on. I am assuming that you did that. It is not like the stand alone Sunbird which I do not believe is supported any longer.

    The installed version may not be compatible with the installed version of Thunderbird. Export your calandar file to a file in Documents of wherever you want to put it. Uninstall Thunderbird and all of its config files. Then reinstall it with the Lightning add on. The current version of Thunderbird is 12.0.1 and Lightning is 1.04 I believe.
