    Default Lightning does not install

    Hi all,

    I use openSUSE 11.1, 64 bits version.
    I also have Thunderbird version 3.0.3 .

    I would like to install Lightning (version 1.0 beta 1) but I get the following error :

    Lightning" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Thunderbird build type (Linux_x86_64-gcc3). Please contact the author of this item about the problem.

    Has anyone a clue about how solving this problem, please ?

    Thank you very much,

    W

    You need the 64-bit build of Lightning, see the first "review" on its home page.

    Thank you for your answer.

    This URL redirects me to :

    [/I]Index of /pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/1.0b1/contrib/linux-x86_64[I]

    where, indeed, I find the file [I]Lightning.xpi[I].

    But how can I install it now into Thunderbird ?

    As you see, I am fairly new to the Linux world, so any help is appreciated.

    Well, indeed, sir.

    I tried what was written on that page :

    1. I went to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2313

    2. I went to Index of /pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/1.0b1/contrib/linux-x86_64

    3. I right-clicked and Save link as to my hard disk (directory Lighning - which I created on the fly)

    4. I went to Thunderbird --> Tools --> Add-ons --> Extensions --> Install

    5. I pointed to the directory in which I had saved the link

    6. Thunderbird installed Lightning

    7. I restarted openSUSE and all went well

    So thank you very much,

    W

    For those having difficulty after the latest (July 2010) update to TB3.1 on x_86 machines, look here for Lightning and the Google provider .xpi files
