Great...but still going to stick with Outlook Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Absolutely great, and would have been a perfect replacement for my Outlook 2007...except for the seeming fact that whatever changes I make to my calendar in TBird will not sync with my Google Calendar. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong with the Provider for Google Calendar plugin or something, but if I can't make changes to my GCalendar via TBird, then I might as well keep my calendar management on Outlook. At least that, by minimum, syncs with Google Calendar.

Need different version Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like the package, but have to use 0.8 because 0.9 is not available in the version I need. Is there any chance of getting Lightning 0.9 in a Linux_x86_64-gcc3 version?

How to print the task list? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good but needs improvements Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am impressed, how much has been done in the last few years (usability, much better look) on this add on. However I find the following weaknesses:
1) the memory consumption is vast: about 80 MB which is approx. 3 times the memory TB uses without this addon is simply too much.
2) The online calendars (in my case I used google calendar) do not get updated if they are updated online, the changes made locally (= in TB) are not reflected in the online version, ...
Good, but keep working.

Works on Ubuntu Intrepid Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ubuntu users of Hardy and Intrepid, remember to ensure that libstdc++5 is installed before you install this extension(sudo apt-get install libstdc++5).

I have no idea why this makes a difference(there are no error messages if this is *not* installed), but having this package installed *before* installing 0.9 fixes the layout (even in 0.8 and 0.7!) and the problems of calendar functions being disabled.

I installed 0.9 after installing libstdc++5 and copying the storage.sdb from my profile in the hardy backup. 0.9 picked up my old calendars right away. It also seems to work with my Google calendar provider extension.

Caution: Always backup the storage.sdb file in your profile directory before performing any upgradation/reinstalling of Lightning extension.

downgrade to .8 or below from .9 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

0.9 is a pita and learnt it the hardway. So if you would like to downgrade, uninstall the extension, delete the storage.sdb file in your profiles directory ofcourse after backing up and then reinstall a lower version.

So move your calendar events to a network or export as ics and then you can import once the downgrade is complete.

Am happy to be back on 0.7 now. i will test an update to .8 soon.

On linux, you may need to install the package libstdc ++5 if v0.9 is not working properly. Needed it on 8.10 i386.

Very nice addon in combination with Provider for google calendar.

Good, but Problems Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using Lightening 0.9 for a while on Windows Vista and I like it for coordinating several icalendars. Most of the time it works well for my needs, but it has an annoying problem that keeps popping-up (litterally): sometimes the pop-up reminders refuse to go away. I can try to snooze or dismiss the reminder(s), but they won't update and just stay there and sound the alarm and blinking reminder every few minutes. I can't find any information on a fix either.

lightning now and in future Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Now, i like most of the Design and Functionality it brings with, but...
- no 64bit compatibility!
- no sync function with mobiles and palms (except of funambol, but this can't be a solution for a enduser!).
For me Lightning is unusable for the moment. I really hope that this two features will be implemented in version 1!!

Problem Incompatible extension Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Lightning could not be installed because it's incompatible with my version of Thunderbird (Linux_x86_64-gcc3) So the final conclusion is that there is no Lightning version for any 64 bit computer.

Does not work on Linux Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Installed TB 2.0.0.17 and Lightning 0.90 to Ubuntu 8.04. Lightning does not work at all. The combination works fine on WinXP and Vista. TB 1.5.0.14 and an older version of Lightning works well on Ubuntu 6.10. I hope it'll be fixed as soon as possible.

This is an great plugin for windows.
The only big con I see is it does not work on Linux.

Let's hope it does sometime.
