    Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    To provide a bit more current info on this issue:

    The following order of operations worked well for me with Ubuntu 8.04.1 (amd64)

    1. Installed Thunderbird 2.0.0.17 from Ubuntu package

    2. Installed Lightning 0.9 from contrib xpi (that is, get download it from Mozilla, don't use the Ubuntu package). A version is here:

    http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozi...nux-x86_64.xpi

    3. Installed Provider for Google 0.5 from Mozilla xpi. A version is here:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thu...-0.5-tb+sb.xpi

    Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    I have followed the instructions and installed the 2 components/add-ins. However, it does not seem to work from the perspective of each respective calendar updating and posting events to the other.

    Is there something that I am missing or should be doing?

    Thanks,

    Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    I have the same problem, I followed the instructions on the first page, when I added the html address to the calender, the dates on the google calender appeared on Lightening, but when I added a task to Lightening, it wont appear on the google calender, and I cant share it with my other pc. Would anybody know why this should be happening?

    Thanks.

    Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    I have been using Thunderbird/Lightning for awhile very happily, but then decided to reinstall Ubuntu (8.04) to occupy my entire disk, ditching Vista. I backed up my entire home directory, and then restored it after the reinstall. Most of Thunderbird works fine, and all my data is there, including mail and addressbooks, but not my calendars. It will be a great loss if I can't recover them. Has anyone been through this before?

    Problem solved. Had to uninstall Lightning, then install libstdc++5, then reinstall Lightning.

    Gcal does not have the facility of adding tasks. It can accept only events. Thats why you had that problem.

    Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    I have Thunderbird 2.0.0.17 just installed with Add/Remove, and I tried to install Lightning 0.9 from the Mozilla site, but I got an error message that this version of Lightning is not compatible with the version of Thunderbird that I have.

    I got a similar message for the Google Provider above as well.

    Cool Re: Using Google Calendar, Thunderbird and Lighting to full effect

    How does it work in 8.10? I've tried to use the Lightning ubuntu package and just the addon.The addon does not work(no calendar availible or addable). And with the lightning package Provider for Google Calendar does not work.
