Calendar in Incognito 2009.0 beta - Thunderbird/Lightning 0.9??


I've been looking for a calendar app for Incognito - days/weeks broken down into hours, appointments, etc. Is there an app that will work in Incognito? I tried Lightning 0.9 plug-in for Thunderbird and although it installs it does not work.

Lightning 0.9
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thu.../versions/2313

I have an encrypted persistent home volume on my USB flash but still have a problem with Lighting. As a test I disabled the existing plug-ins in Thunderbird but this did not help.

Can anyone suggest how I may be able to get Lighting working in Incognito 2009.0 beta OR suggest another way I can have a working calendar.

Thanks very much.

Evolution has a built in calendar application that works just fine right out of the box.

Lightning used to work for me with thunderbird. What you get ? An error message or what ?

You asked for suggestion, right ? Well, I am addicted by Google services. You known, I am not talking only about gmail. There is gtalk, google docs, Picassa e Calendar which needs just a browser. I don't have to install anything anywhere and I can access my documents and check my calendar using any browser in any computer, even using a smart phone !

GCalendar is really great, by the way. After Google Services, I switched completely from thunderbird+lightning to Google.

I didn't see evolution in Incognito. Is it in there?

No error message at all. "New Event" and "New Task" "Delete" "Print" "Reload" are greyed out (unavailable) other toolbar icons are present but do nothing when clicked, same with most calendar related menu options. "Today Pane" and "Find Events" has display respective fields/frames but they are useless without the rest.

Thanks for the suggestion but I need the calendar (and address book) to be completely off-line.

I'm sorry. You right. Incognito is a KDE based distro. Evolution is a Gnome application and so it was not included in Incognito.

KDE has your own PIM application: kmail, which has calendar integrated too.

Thanks marozsas, but I don't see kmail either. The Incognito KDE distro is configured for anonymity so it may have been removed.

If I could only get extensions to work in Thunderbird I would be fine with Lightning. Considering the nature of Incognito, I think installing software would be even more problematic.
