Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Upgrade from Ubuntu Gutsy, which was up to date, to Hardy Heron using i386 Alternate CD only left one problem - Thunderbird which had Lightning Extension installed seems to have been upgraded as well. But when starting Thunderbird for the first time it reported that the calendar information had been upgraded by a newer version of Lightning, so will be disabled. Synaptic showed Lightning-Extension 0.7, so I downloaded and installed 0.8. This starts up in Thunderbird but is completely non-functioning, and I can't see any of my earlier calendar entries. I vahe removed and re-installed both Thunderbird and Lightning and always end up with the version-wrong-so-it'll-disable-lightning or 0.8 opens but does nothing.

The problem of the calendar not functioning correctly is caused by the fact that libstdc++5 wasn't installed on my system. Please test if installing the package fixes the problem for you.

Hello.

Thanks for that. It worked, and all my old calendar entries are in tact!

Thanks very very much!

You have saved my life.

Closing due to the libstdc++5 is upstreams fault as we have upgraded to use ++6 on everything where mozilla was using ++5 this is fixed in our 0.8 build in PPA will be hitting repos for Hardy as soon as we can get it in Intrepid.
