Mozilla Lightning: parallel usage under Linux and Windows
 
Hello @all,

I have a dual-boot laptop, which runs WindowsXP Pro and Ubuntu 12.04. I have FAT32-drive, which is visible for both OSs and where all my documents (including mail profile) are located. In the last weeks I get problems with extension "Lightning" - either I can use it under Linux, or under Windows (but earlier it ran under both systems simultaneously without issues).

Can anyone give me a hint, how I can resolve the problem? I suspect, it has anything to do with different versions of Thunderbird, which I use on Ubuntu and WinXP. Am I right?

Thanks in advance and best regards from Hamburg/Germany,

Andrey

same versions of Thunderbird and Lightning in both environments?

Hello,
yes, same versions: Thunderbird 17.0 + Lightning 1.9.

You may need another version of Lightning...

Yes, I have read that article, but I don't see how it can help me.

At the present - after update of Thunderbird under Windows - "Lightning" works. I want to check if it also works under Linux...

If they are the same versions, why wouldn't it?

Worse-case scenario, uninstall the one that doesn't work (Thunderbird in --safe-mode or some such switch) and install another version from the another version link.

HTH.

New information
 
Hello @all,

sorry for being silent for such a long time (I had some problems with my job, and had no time to play further with "Lightning").

Yesterday I found an article, describing my issue: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=3176895. I tried to create a combi-installation of the addon as described in this post. Result: in both OSs (Linux and Windows) I could see "Today Pane" in the Thunderbird, but it had no information at all, and I couldn't synchronize my calendars, the buttons were grey/disabled.

Has anyone here an idea, how I could bring that "combi"-installation into running state? Or, perhaps, another solution...

Greetings from Hamburg,
Andrey

worst advice ever.
Code:

mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/ ~/.mozilla/firefox.org

I agree. @Jack-ah: we speak about Thunderbird. And Thunderbird <> Firefox.

What does this code do?

But, anyway, this will not help me, since I used "shared profile"- folder is accessible by both Linux and Windows.

it 'resets' the firefox profile and I meant to give you the "mv thunderbird..." command. and you're correct, it won't help you, sorry.
