How to really get calendaring working with Thunderbird on 64 bit Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)
The default Thunderbird for Ubuntu 10.04 is version 3.0.4 and Mozilla Sunbird is not available in the repositories for 10.04. The official replacement is Lightning, a plugin for Thunderbird, but the version of Lightning that's on Mozilla's plugin site is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.0.4. There are a number of links for development versions of Lightning that are supposed to work with Thunderbird 3.0.4, but they are 32-bit. A common piece of advice on various forums is to give up and downgrade. You *don't* have to change your version of Thunderbird at all.
This is the 64-bit build that worked for me. Download all three xpi files manually and install them from the Add-ons screen in Thunderbird. http://www.secudb.de/~seuffert/mozil...nux%20english/
I posted on this topic yesterday talking about upgrading to Thunderbird 3.1, but I was wrong. Luckily my previous post is not showing up-- maybe the moderators didn't approve it because it was incorrect, or maybe because I couldn't resist complaining about retiring Sunbird before its replacement was ready. If you see that post, please ignore it. This is the better solution.
