Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect
For those that are having problems with Thunderbird versions. I use the following solution:
Run Thunderbird Portable from a USB stick. It runs under Windows (XP & Vista) and Linux (using Wine).
This way, I have the same calendar and contacts on any computer I use (I have to use several different computers at work, plus two different ones at home, and any at school). The Portable Apps site has a good number of applications that install to and run from a USB stick. I initially started using it for the OpenOffice.Org installation. I love the Thunderbird+Lightning functionality. Now with this guide, I have all I need. Thanks. Previous to your guide, I could only get my Google Calendar as read only; now it works perfectly!!
Ubuntu 7.10 64bit on Toshiba Laptop A135-S4467 (and everything seems to work!!). I will be updating the Laptop Testing Page to reflect this soon.
