Re: How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

I believe it is fixed now. It is working fine now for me. Nothing done on my part, other than applying all the updates.

I installed the lightning extension from synaptic "xul-ext-lightning" and now I get calender and task buttons on the opening Thunderbird screen, and it appears to be functioning OK, displayed as version 60.2.1.
Hey, that worked! Thanks for finding that.

Re: Upgrade to T'bird 60.2.1 zaps Lightning Calender add-on

With Synaptic I was able to get back to TB 38.6. Everything is working again. Not sure how to go from 38.6 to 52.9. Anyone? In Synaptic, highlight Thunderbird (version 60), then on the Package menu, choose Force version... You should be able to select 52.9 version I did that. 60.2 & 38.6 are the on...

Re: Fix please - Upgrade to T'bird 60.2.1 zaps Calender

Same problem on Mint 18.3 cinnamon - Thunderbird 60.2.1 appeared as default install in "Update Manager" and after applying this (which had to come from an official repo) I have no calender tab and nothing I've tried has worked to restore calender access. The upgrade was from whatever version was av...

Re: Upgrade to T'bird 60.2.1 zaps Lightning Calender add-on

Hmm, that is the one I installed too. Provider was a no go though. :( I'm using v 4.4.2 of 'Provider for Google Calendar' if that helps. That is the one I tried as well. Even before I install Provider, when click the Day, Week, Multiweek, or Month tabs, nothing happens. lightning-6.2b6.en-US is not...

Re: Thunderbird 60 Released

... just installed LMDE3 and there, Thunderbird 60 comes out of the box, no hassle at all. AddOn Lighning though needs to be installed manually as a beta release. Once you have overcome this hurdle, AddOn Google calendar can be installed as an official AddOn and it will work flawlessly, no problems...

Re: How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

Same here. In 17.3 there was a setting under screensaver to "lock the computer when the screen turns off". That switch is missing in Mint 19.

Firefox 57 no longer remembers print to file location

With the update to Firefox 57, it is no longer remembering my default print to file location. Have I forgotten how to set this, or is this a new (ahem) feature?

Re: [SOLVED] Menu Configuration Doesn't Open

Never mind. I fixed it by opening it from the "applets preferences" from system settings. Now it opens normally with a right click. :roll:
