Mint 12 gnome 3 lightning calendar integration

Postby solar1951 on Fri Nov 11, 2011 6:17 am

I am using Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome shell and liking it - no flames pls - but there is no integration with the lightning calendar, thunderbirds add-on,in the date display. (center of top panel)
There is the possibility of integrating google calendars with this, but not lightning - there is a messy work around but its ugly.
Perhaps the devs could look at solving this for Mint 12 ?

There is a workaround for this here: http://dmtg.me.uk/2011/04/17/thunderbird-calendar-in-gnome-3/

This is already known for a while (6 months at least from the bugreports), and it needs to be fixed either at Mozilla or GNOME. Not sure the Linux Mint team can handle this :wink: Apparently it is up to the GNOME 3 code to accept Thunderbird as a source for calendar events (or up to those developers to submit a patch to GNOME 3). Perhaps check the FAQ or contact the developers of this add-on? https://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/lightning/

Thanks for the reply Vincent. This was the workaround I mentioned. I guess its up to the Gnome people, do you have a link to the bug report ?

I found several bugreports, but none at the Mozilla or GNOME websites. RedHat bugreport https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=689288.
