Using Lightning with dual boot?


Hello,

I have a dual boot setup with Vista and Ubuntu. I installed Thunderbird on both systems and directed them to the same profile on the windows :d drive. So far everything works great, the e-mail is the same from both systems.

Then I installed the Lightning extension on both systems. I put a bunch of stuff in the calendar in Ubuntu but I can't see it from Vista.

Is there a way to have Lightning point toward the same profile from both systems so I can access the same calendar from either one?

Thanks.

If you have a server with apache, you can use web_dav to distribute calendars

I don't, just the one pc.

I was hoping there would be a way to put the files on the windows D drive and have the applications from each system point to the same place, just like I'm doing with Thunderbird.

Another way to do it would be to use a Google calendar and set up lightning to link to this from both linux and ms.

You're lucky you can get the Lightning extension working in Thunderbird. Mine never has so I have to use Sunbird. Does anyone know about this problem whereby when I switch to calendar view, I get the basic layout but the day/week/month pains don't load up - I get the boxes but no dates and I can't add appointments? I am using the stable Thunderbird 2.0.0.19 and Lightning 0.9 from the add-ons page of mozilla with Fedora 8. Tried creating a brand new linux user account but still the same problem.

Check down the list of requirement on the lightling page and make sure you have them all installed. It's a while since I installed it, but it does run without all prerequisites, just not properly (and what you describe sounds familiar)

Thanks for that. I checked and I don't have all the pre-reqs. I assumed that because Sunbird worked, Lightning would also but I guess I've learnt a lesson. I don't have gtk+ v2, libstdc++5 or XFree86 - I have Xorg instead.

And that precludes you loading the library packages?

I'm sure I got it working in F9 by simply working down the prereq. list.
