I use Windoze XP and Ubuntu 7.10 Dualboot Thunderbird 2.0.0.12 with Lightning 0.8 (latest version) nightly build (currently 4March08).
The Windows printing issue (printing *twice*) remains - but I do not really mind...
More seriously:
The Calendar, when printing from lightning, is only in black and white. I tried pdf, ps, and printing to Windoze image-printing or whatever it's called. In Sunbird 0.3 I can print in color without any such problem.

Specifically: I use pdf995 under Windoze (http://www.pdf995.com/suite.html) and when using that pdf-printer-driver I get a new error message (printing in black and white goes through fine though!) which reads:

C:\Program Files\....\pdf995\res\drivedir\pdflib.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:0faf IP:fffa OP:83 32 c5 01 ff Chose 'Close' to terminate application.

Maybe this is too detailed and specific but I just thought it might help in figuring out some hidden bug. I seem to get always this same exact error message.

Aside from all this. The integration with Thunderbird seems to work well. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Have you enabled menu File -> Page Setup... -> Format & Options -> Print Background (color & images)?

Thanks ssitter, I was not aware of that setting. It now works, and so does sharing of calendars from both Windoze and Ubuntu Linux...

Re: overall printing function:

I found that "FG printers" extension works great, I recommend it highly. Naturally I don't remember were the link is, it is in this forum somewhere. http://www.grassmann.info

It always behaves that way. You are doing nothing wrong.
