Re: Problem with top bar date

There are two separate things involved here. The Default Applications setting should just determine what application is opened when clicking on a calendar link. I'm afraid I don't know how you'd go about getting your version of Thunderbird recognized here.

The gnome-shell calendar dropdown will fetch calendar info from any supported accounts you've configured in gnome-online-accounts. So if you're using google (gmail) for your calendar, set up your account in the Online Accounts settings tool, and be sure that the Calendar option is toggled "on". I believe this does use the evolution-data-server library, but it does not require the full evolution application to be installed.

Hi.  A quick question.  For usability reasons, I use an older version of Thunderbird.  Using menulibre, I was easily able to create a menu entry for Tbird.  But when I try to set the default calendar under Options, Default Applications, Gnome doesn't display Tbird.  I love clicking on the date on the top bar and seeing upcoming events.  But nothing appears there, presumably because it's looking to the Evolution calendar, which is the default, but doesn't exist in my system.  Yikes!  How can I fix this?  Thanks.
