Bug Description

Binary package hint: sunbird

Sunbird needs a event daemon (at startup) to open alert/alarms/reminders. At the moment, without opening sunbird, you will not get reminders/alarms.

sunbird 0.7+nobinonly-0ubuntu2
ubuntu 8.04.1

I can confirm that in Intrepid the reminders only come up once you open Thunderbird (Lightning).

I have removed 0.8 from my PPA at this time. I;m working on 0.9 and should be pushed later today or tomorrow. Jaunty has 0.9 already and at this time we dont want to back port 0.9 due to lack of testing, i dont want to add a broken package to backports. I will let you know when sunbird 0.9 is ready from my PPA
