I am new to Linux Mint. I would like to use Lightning, but it does not appear anywhere, not even as a tab under preferences for me to configure. How do I make it visible?

Yes, true. Actually, what I did was uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall it. My version is now 45.2.0 That solved my problem. I can now configure my calendar. Hoorah!

Lightning is an add on. If it does not appear on the add on page it is not installed. Download and install it.

I understand Lightning comes bundled with Thunderbird as per this:

https://stosu.com/lightning-calendar-and-task-manager-now-comes-bundled-with-thunderbird/

or this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/installing-lightning-thunderbird

It clearly says on the first line of the article "Lightning is bundled with Thunderbird". So I ask again, how do I make this "so called" bundled feature visible?

I'm pressing here, because I tried for several hours to download it as an ad-on. Despite following the advice on Thunderbird help pages, it still would not install.

It remains an add-on, though it is now downloaded and installed by default when you first install Thunderbird, that is, when all goes well.

What does "it still would not install" mean?

First off, here is my preferences panel. Please note, there is no section for Lightning, unlike the one on my other computer, an iMac.

I tried to install the Lightning add-on following directions on Thunderbird support page. I saved the file lightning-4.7-sm+tb-linux.xpi I went to add-on manager -> clicked the to tools-for-all-addons -> install-addon- from-file I located lightning-4.7-sm+tb-linux.xpi and clicked "open". I got a message on a red box at top of screen: Lightning could not be installed because it is not compatible with Thunderbird 38.8.0

So, again, I must press my question still, the support site says Lightning is bundled with Thunderbird. Where is it?

Every version of Thunderbird has a matching version of Lightning. Install the correct version for Thunderbird 38 or upgrade to the latest version of Thunderbird.
