How to use Free Busy in Thunderbird / Lightning?



  • .. also, if you open the Error Console (under Tools) and try to get freebusy info does it show anythin gthere?



  • @aseigo

    Also, have you tried https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/freebusy/

    Yes, I tried that. Got it somewhat to work on Windows (but not really). On Linux it does not work at all. The last update to this add-on was Sept 2011. I don't expect that to ever work (again).

    Yes, it spits out a whole bunch of errors. Unfortunately they don't mean anything to me. I'll also head over to Thunderbird Bugzilla and check there.

  • BTW... we just got a request for an account on Kolab Now from a Thunderbird add-on author ... (and of course we fulfilled it! :) so... maybe this will improve.



  • @aseigo
    Nice! Can you share more details? Maybe in a private message?



  • There is another (old) bug report at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1072823 I just found.
