Works perfectly on my notebook running debian buster.
Doesn't work on my office pc running debian buster, same versions of thunderbird & lightning. Weird. Calendar just not showing any entries, can not add new tasks/events. Only difference I see is the different icon in the Add-ons Manager/Extensions menu, black-white icon (lightning not working) va color icon (lightning working). Weird :-/
Both tb (64-bit) versions 68.4.1, both lightning versions 68.4.1. Bummer!

Edit:
Ugly fix: Copied .thunderbird and .cache/thunderbird from working system. Everything working now fine, 5 Stars

Lightning has been extremely useful for keeping me organized when in Thunderbird, as well as enabling quick meeting+reminder creation through my Google calendar and connected devices.

"Suddenly after a long time of using Thunderbird for calendar management, the latest update of TBird (68.3.1) is no longer syncing with my Google calendar. This is so annoying."

Remember we are talking about Thunderbird, one of the best tools in the world. So maybe you just missed to do a step?

After my update, first it did not work at all.
Then I noticed: add-ons were not updated (Google Calendar & Lighting). You can do it manually or wait until it is done automatically (if auto update is active, might take some hours then).

Then: my first google-based calendar account worked directly fine (view+edit) after restart.

The 2nd one did not work at all (this was a corporate calendar): problems during logging in. First I had to login for the google calendar addon, then Lighting, which appeared over and over again without any effect.

What I did: remove calendar.

Then go to
https://myaccount.google.com/security
(User button right top at the goole website -> "Manage you google account" -> google account -> security settings)
Here, you might have added in this case
"Mozilla Thunderbird Email"
"Provider for Google Calendar"
as some corporate providers will block Thunderbird if not configured here.

I just removed "Provider for Google Calendar".

Restart Thunderbird and add a new calendar like you know it. Login, you asked to give access to the "Provider for Google Calendar", you confirm. And it worked again for me. There was also no question for the Lighting plugin coming up again.

Hope this helps!

Avec la dernière version de Thunderbird, nous n'avons plus accès à la gestion du module task en synchronisé ou en désynchronisé! pour l'accés aux emails et la synchronisation avec google c'est parfait. En cas de modification de version, il est préférable de faire une réinstallation complète....

Just update last Google Calendar Plugin and reconnect: works like a charm.
With new Thunderbird's updates, DO NOT update the very first day but wait 10 days. It gives decelopper's a bit of time to test their module's update.... That's it

Suddenly after a long time of using Thunderbird for calendar management, the latest update of TBird (68.3.1) is no longer syncing with my Google calendar. This is so annoying.

It appears that TBird now requires the Lightning add-on which it didn't previously. But after adding that, the Google calendar is still greyed out.

Just a note for those who like me are struggling with Lightning, Google connector and Thunderbird updates since about 68.

It seems there might be incompatibilities with at least some other add-ons. See this forum post:

stopped working after last upgrade - WTF - linux version 68.2.1

i'll have to look for alternatives, this is just madness - it's infeasible, unreasonable and unacceptable to do sh*t like that to your users

sadly this also goes to thunderbird, as without an integrated calendar i can also use webmail etc - as i said will have to look for alternatives.

deeply disapointed - a previously very satisfied user

Lightning is the essential calendar and tasks addon for Thunderbird. I can't live without it.

Synchronise it with Google using the 'Provider for Google Calendar' addon. Alternatively, you can enable CalDAV on your Google Calendar and synchronise that way. However, the CalDAV method will not synchronise your tasks.

Lightning comes bundled in the Windows distribution quite nicely, but getting it enabled on Ubuntu/Debian seems to require the installation of some extra packages with the command: 'sudo apt install xul-ext-lightning'. (You may have to manually remove the addon first.)

What's the sense of this addon if google calendar doesn't work? Even the second addon which should fix it doesn't work. That's open source solutions for you! xD

Today Pane does not work with Thunderbird 68.2.1 (64-bit) with xul-ext-lightning on Linux Mint 19.2.

If I reinstall Provider for Google Calendar, the Today Pane works until I close and reopen Thunderbird.
I can reopen the Today Pane, but it is empty.

Any ideas?

This is a core functional and necessary component for a functional working CALDAV environment. Such as a Zentyal Server / SOGo based service. It works, and should be standardized. Keep up the good work!
