I just recently bought a new Ubuntu laptop that has Thunderbird installed. I am having calendar sync issues

Posted

When trying to set up sync, I have installed the google provider, but am unable to create a new calendar, that choice does not seem to exist. I have done this before, and am convinced that I am doing something wrong, but am unable to figure out what. if anyone has step by step instructions, they would geatly appreciated.

There was a recent problem with Google's OAuth authentication, that affects mail accounts and calendar sync. TB 68.2.1 fixes the problem for mail logins, but until the Provider add-on is updated, I suggest you apply the workaround in comment 22 of the bug report and see if it fixes google calendar issues, especially if your TB version is older than 68.2.1.

Did you make the preference change in Config. editor as mentioned in the bugzilla link?

Tools/Options(Mac:Preferences; Linux:Edit/Preferences)/Advanced/General/Config. editor, or Options/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor from the 3-bar AppMenu.
