Thanks for the FAQs.

I have a question for point 5:

Yup, it looks like "Google public calendar" doesn't need the "Provider for Google Calendar". Sorry I should have checked; I just assumed it would work the same way as it does for all of my private calendars.

Here are the steps to get it to post a "Google Public Calendar":

After installing the Lightning extension (restart your Thunderbird):

* you will now have a new menu item "Events and Tasks
* choose "Calendar"
* on the left-hand side, you will see your private calendar (this one is based on your hardrive)
* click anywhere in the white background beneath your private calendar
* pick "New Calendar"
* pick "On the Network" then press "Next"
* pick iCalendar (ICS) and insert the LibreOffice iCal address in the field next to "Location") then press "Next" * name your calendar (presumably you would want to call it LibreOffice Events); pick the colour of the calendar of you choice; "Show Reminders" and E-mail is up to you. Press "Next" and "End" * Your new "LibreOffice Events" calendar should now show in the left hand side.

* To change any of the calendar's properties, just right-click on the calendar name on the left-hand side and choose "Properties". Also note that you cannot Add or Delete any events unless you have Admin rights *If you have Admin rights to the "LibreOffice Events Calendar", then you would have to use the "Provider for Google Calendar" option when creating your Thunderbird-Lightning calendar and you will to add the email/password to access the calendar.

Let me know if this does not work. I have just tested this (both for public and Admin calendar) and it works fine. I'll modify the FAQ with this information.
