For Thunderbird 15.0 / Lightning 1.7 the following procedure works for me: Open the "Today Pane" ie. the Events panel on the right hand side next to the email list. Drag&Drop the ics-file onto that pane. In my case (Kubuntu 12.04) it will create the event. Hope this helps. N.B In Windows 7, you need to hold the CTRL key down while dragging the ICS ...

There is no integrated search as far as I know. However, there is a rather good search function in Lightning, you can access it under the main menu > Events and Tasks > Find events. A search bar along with a list of events will appear on top of your main calendar view. You can filter the search criteria on a time basis and expand the events information (and ...

I have found the answer: If you have Lightning installed, right-click on the email, and from the context menu select Convert To->Task.

Use the URL you suggest, https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/yourID/events, but rather than using your.cool.username@gmail.com as the substitute for yourID, put in the calendar name instead. To find that name, start with a Google Calendar window, then go to Settings->Calendars and click on the name of the Calendar you care about. Now scroll down ...

Use Google Tasks Sync for Mozilla Thunderbird. It requires Lightning for calendar support.

Right click on the mail and click Convert > Event

I use a Google Calendar with Thunderbird/Lightning and I have always been able to Accept invitations through Thunderbird. I recently lost the Accept/Decline buttons and just figured out the problem. I had recently added a shared iCloud calendar, and the new calendar was automatically associated with the same email address as the Google calendar. All I had ...

The refresh intervals are statically specified in the Lightning extension's source code, but Thunderbird extension code is all in Javascript and the XML dialect Gecko uses to specify user interfaces, so it's not particularly hard to add whatever intervals you need. Here's how you do so: First, if you don't already have one handy, you'll need to download a ...

Try two things (I'll start with the no-cost option first): Unplug everything, press the power button (in an attempt to turn it back on), then plug everything back in and power it on again; this is a "deep power cycle" and I am guessing that the extra power that might have traveled over your network wiring may have overcharged some of your capacitors (or ...

On Windows: Save the attachment to the desktop From Events & Tasks select Import Select the .ICS to be added to the Calendar From the calendar pop-up select which calendar to add the event

One interesting workaround for this problem, whilst we're stuck waiting for tasks API, is to use Bryan Clark's Google Calendar Tab. As long as you have your tasks displayed on your Google calendar, you will then have access to them from Thunderbird too. Obviously this isn't as good as native integration into Thunderbird via an API, but its the best I've ...

Before my family moved to another system, I synced all the calenders to iCalX. You could also try Google Calender, but you are going to need a central account to sync your stuff to (family account?). Don't try and do in house syncing. It's way too difficult.

Found it ... it was under "Events and Tasks".

This one works for me http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/1.0b2/contrib/linux-x86_64/

Google has released the Google Tasks API in May 2011. There's a getting started guide on the Google apps developers blog. The GDATA Provider developers track the issue but it hasn't been resolved yet.

No, you can't do that in the current version. This was a feature request that languished a while (since 2003): Events spanning days are seen as multiple events (display), and was then watered down into this: Add markers for multi-day events in multiday views The watered-down requirement was to have made the 0.9 release according to the Sunbird 0.9 release ...

There is no way to directly sync, one problem being that 'Google Tasks' are far simpler than 'Thunderbird Tasks'. Howerver, "Google Tasks Sync 0.3.1" is a currently working addon that pops up in the Task daily pane to the right of the calendar and email (when daily pane view is active) and presents the Google Task system nested neatly there. It's not a web ...

The problem here is that one accepted it will send a whole load of new erroneous invitations. The bug details from Mozilla are here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=400808 A fix to this issue with GC would be hugely welcome to those of us who are heavy calendar users with open source mail clients! This issue is so significant for some of our ...

I had the same problem as you, I wanted something smooth and quick which ran on both my iPhone and my Computer. The solution I found, was Google Tasks. The problem with this, however, is that it requires internet to be present, so you would need an iPhone with working 3G/GPRS when you need to add something on the go! It has a complete iPhone interface! ...

That appears to be a bug in Thunderbird: 799505 -No reminders for events organized by someone else There is a related bug report / feature request open since August 2008: 451380 -Events from accepted invitations cannot be edited or updated locally

Here is my work-around using Thunderbird 17.0.4, Lightning 1.9.1, and Provider 0.18. Double click on the invite so it is in its own tab. Right click on the email invite and a sub-menu appears. Select 'Convert to' and then a smaller sub menu window appears with "Google task", "Event", or "Task". Select "Event" and it will place the details of the invite as ...

It depends on the zooming factor (CTRL+/-) of the view i.e. the number of hours displayed in the view, but arises when the height of the events is the minimum value. The minimum height depends on the text font size and a bit of margin/padding in the event boxes (the minimum height allows to vertically display the text). If you set a duration to 5 minutes ...

I've suffered the same symptoms but with the following configuration: Windows 7 Enterprise Thunderbird 24.5.0 Lightning 2.6.5 No Google Calendar plug-in A few webcal calendars plus a couple of local moz-storage-calendar calendars After a few wild goose chases, this solved it for me: For all non-editable calendars, change Properties->Email to "None" For ...

In the current version (0.18 with lightning 1.9.1), this is a hidden feature which is disabled by default. It is slightly buggy, but works sufficiently to just get an invitation into your google calendar from your (possibly non-google) inbox. Using the config editor, simply set calendar.google.enableEmailInvitations to true. You may also want to set ...

According to multiple threads I've found, Google cal does not support "Accept" or "Reject" somehow. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1826045 The solution was to set the "Automatically add invitations to my calendar" option, but it doesn't say whether on gmail or in lightning. Just found a solution for me (not-a-google-calendar) - the ...

If you have the Lightning calendar extension installed on Thunderbird and have the Events pane open. You can add an ICS file by holding the CTRL key and then dragging the ICS file on to the events pane. (The CTRL key needs to be pressed on Windows, but apparently it may work without pressing the CTRL key on Linux) The only problem with it seems to be it ...

You have to add the other Google calendars separatly to Lighning. There is a url every calendar has (go to your calendar settings). Maybe the calendar is not public, then you have to authenticate with your eg. google account.

have you tried google calendar sync? It's compatible with Outlook 2007 and 2010. You can then sync your thunderbird with the google calendar.
