View Full Version : [ubuntu] Thunderbird Lightening Problems

May 23rd, 2008, 01:53 PM
I dont know if it's me or if it's the software, but I can't seem to use lightening add on.. ie put in tasks or diary dates nothing.

I can't change the format from daily to weekly etc.

Is anyone having issues?

I used to use lightning but I eventually gave up on it as it isn't a finished product.

Did you install lightning from the repos (via synaptic or apt)?

Did you download the lightning add-on from the mozilla page?

the version in the repos is older, for gutsy its version .5 on the mozilla page its version .7 (i think).

I found better success with the mozilla download version, however, both versions were unsatisfactory. I would recommend you try Evolution. I didn't like the GUI of evolution for the first week or so but it is far superior to lightning.
