Sync Thunderbird & Gnome Calendar


#1

If I enter any calendar info into Thunderbird (Lightening) it doesn’t show up in the Gnome Calendar. I did find a blog where someone walked through steps to get that to work (https://is.gd/wsqwvD), but it didn’t. Any ideas about getting this to work?


#2

The guide you cite is for Evolution, a different application than Thunderbird.

Beyond pointing that out, I am useless for this issue. I’m sorry!


#3

Actually, this guide is for somehow integrating Thunderbird’s Lightening into Evolution and then that hooks into the Gnome Calendar. It actually does work! It turns out I didn’t wait long enough to see the results. But once it somehow all synced up any changes to Thunderbird showed up immediately in the Gnome Calendar.

I just looked at it more closely, and tinkered further. I got it working, too :slight_smile:


#5

dc3p. Now it’s not working for me. Have you experienced the same?


#6

Are the calendar only stored local or do you have an network account like nextcloud?


#7

Local, per the instructions in the link in an earlier post. I tried setting up NextCloud, but didn’t work. Have to research that when I have time.
