For discussing the Mozilla Calendar, Sunbird and Lightning projects.

I've just installed Lightning 0.9 into Thunderbird 18.104.22.168. Using it to maintain a task list, not using the calendar at all (except to mark pay day!) and I'm not syncing with any remote calendars. It generally works fine for a while and then out of nowhere, whenever I try to modify a task I get the error "MODIFICATION_FAILED". I then close and restart Thunderbird, and it works fine again.
Is there a fix for this?
Just done it again, I looked in the Error Console and found this:
Error: An error occurred when writing to the calendar Home! Error code: MODIFICATION_FAILED. Description:
Source File: file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Owner/Application%20Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/b4k6gdl7.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/components/calItemModule.js -> file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Owner/Application%20Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/b4k6gdl7.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/js/calCalendarManager.js
Having the same problem. I'm using Lightning and accessing a calendar on a remote server. I also can't delete tasks. I try, but when I reload, the task comes back. Any solutions would be appreciated.
I've also noticed since writing this topic that when this error comes up if I'm marking a task as completed (via the tickbox in the task list), I will get the error - but then I can restart Thunderbird and it DID save the change, or even if I just tick "Show completed Tasks" and then untick it again, the status change HAS been saved.....
I just installed Lightning. Looks like a great tool. Unfortunately I have the same error when I connect to my Google calendar. I'm just wondering, if somebody has a solution. I tried to delete all my passwords of email accounts, reinstalled it, recreated the iCal link. No success. When doing any modification I get the error and then the calendar is set to readonly.
Google allows only read access via the iCalendar feed and forbids write access. Therefore you can't create/edit/delete events, dismiss/snooze alarms, ...
You can get write access to the calendar e.g. by using the Provider for Google Calendar extension.
Problems are solved.
This doesn't fix it for me. TB version 22.214.171.124 (20081209), Lightning 0.9, Provider for GC 0.5.1.
Cache is turned off. It's not my main Google calendar, but a secondary one which I created in my account. Using URL http://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/bl ... blah/basic
It doesn't seem to fix it for all the people in http://forums-test.mozillazine.org/view ... 0&start=45 either.
Any suggestions? This suddenly started happening to me today...
I'm having the same issue with Lightning and a Zimbra Caldav calendar.
Has anybody got a way to resolve this?
I assume the possibilities involve changing Zimbra to allow write access via Caldav? Or making the Dismiss button not actually write to the calendar?
I had the same problem using Provider to sync my Google Calendar with Lightning. I think the problem has to do with the experimental "Buffer" option in Lightning 0.9. I turned it of for the calendar with which I had the problem, and the problem disappeared. Strangely enough, other calendars (also with buffer enabled) don't have the problem :-/ . Also when I re-enable the buffer option, the problem remains absent (for now).
Hmmm, two years later ---- just installed Zimbra and just installed Thunderbird on my mac. Trying to access Zimbra calendar via CalDAV and failing exactly the same way.
Has this ever been solved?
Please start a new thread, ref; this one if needed. Thanks.
Locking this oldie.
