Description Felix Schwarz 2012-04-30 04:01:53 EDT
Description of problem:
After I updated Thunderbirg+Lightning I can't access my calendar anymore as the menu items are not displayed anymore.

Lightning is still displayed in the settings menu and I see the calendar icon on the lower right.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
When starting from the console I see some output from the lightning plugin (e.g. "Warning: Calendar … has a dangling E-Mail identity configured.").

In Thunderbird's error log I see many error messages such as:
Timestamp: 30.04.2012 09:56:33
Error: undefined entity
Source File: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-common-sets.xul
Line: 422, Column: 7

Creating a fresh Thunderbird profile did not help.
Comment 1 Felix Schwarz 2012-04-30 04:25:33 EDT
The problem is because broken locales (I'm using 'de'). If I start Thunderbird with "LANG=C thunderbird" everything works as expected. Downgrading severity as this is only a problem for some locales.

I found this upstream bug which contains more info on a related issue ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=736717 ) though the lightning developers consider the bug fixed and the Fedora package seems to use the latest tar ball.
Comment 2 Felix Schwarz 2012-04-30 05:02:54 EDT
I was able to get Lightning working again with the German locale by running 'mklangsource.sh'+rebuild. So I assume that by the time you generated l10n-1.4.tar.xz the hg repos did not contain the fixed translations.

Sale problem for me using locales fr

I just updated to:


and when I start Thunderbird in terminal I get:

$ thunderbird
[object ChromeWindow]:mail-startup-done
-- Exception object --
+ fileName (string) 'chrome://lightning/content/messenger-overlay-sidebar.js'
+ lineNumber (number) 439
-- Stack Trace --
([object Object],[object Object])@chrome://lightning/content/messenger-overlay-sidebar.js:87
openTab("calendar",[object Object])@chrome://messenger/content/tabmail.xml:548
oncommand([object XULCommandEvent])@chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul:1

Thunderbird run fine with lightning if I specify LANG=C
