I have a problem with the reminder alarm set for an event in Thunderbird with Lightning.
Once the reminder alarms pop up at the specified time prior to the event, they just keep reappearing relentlessly. They cannot be dismissed or made to snooze. Even changing the event back to no reminder required, and saving the event does not work. Has anyone encountered this problem? Would appreciate a fix or a workaround.
I'll move you to the Calendar forum.
Alcohol and Calculus don't mix. Never drink and derive.
What Lightning version and OS do you use? Where do you store your events? In a local calendar, an iCalendar (ics) file, CalDAV server, ... ?
Oops-I should have provided additonal information for a proper resolution to my query earlier:
a.I use Windows XP Professional, Thunderbird 22.214.171.124, Lightning 0.9. Events are stored on Google Calendar.
b. I have no problems in syncing new events whenever I make an update in Google Calendar(on the web) or on my computer in Thunderbird.
c.The problem is only with changing/syncing reminders. Even if I make the change in Google, the pop-up alarms on Thunderbird/Lightning do not stop.
Would appreciate any input to fix this. Thanks.
you can install the latest version of gdata-provider, then it should be solved:
How do you access Google Calendar? Via the read-only iCalendar feed? Via the Provider for Google Calendar extension? Via the new CalDAV support in Google Calendar? Do you have the experimental cache feature enabled for that calendar?
I access Google Calendar via the Provider v 0.5.1 for Google Calendar Extension. Experimental cache is enabled. Is there a step I have missed? Thanks.
I have read in other posts in this forum that the experimental cache causes this issue. You could disable it and check if the issue still exists.
I reinstalled the latest version of gdata provider from the Mozilla Addons site, just for good order's sake.(https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/thunderbird/addon/4631).
And disabled the experimental cache. This does largely solve the problem-whenever the alarm pops up, I can now dismiss it, and the alarm thankfully disappears. So this does partly solve the problem. Thanks!
However I wonder why changing the event back to no reminder required, and saving the event does not result in a change in the reminder settings of the event. If I change the time/date of the event, the change does come through on the calendar. So , there still seems to be some kind of limitation in the reminder setting function of the calendar.
