date offset between lightning and rainlendar? 2 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hei!

Trying to open the rainlendar ics file as a lightning calendar and...

the lightning shows all normal events created in rainlendar with start/end date beeing 1973 instead of 2012.

Same time offset vice versa - if I create an event with lightning for today in the calendar file used by rainlendar I see the event date in rainlendar beeing in the year 2050.

The same time differnce remains when I import the ics calendar file from Rainlendar

The lighting version I use is 1.2.1 (thunderbird 10.0.1)and the rainlendar version is
2.9 (b111).

Is there a fundamental diffrenece how different apps approach the entry in ics file? Or bug somewhere?
Or perhaps I am not suppose to open these ICS calendar files with some other app as they are not interchangeable?

rgds,
Paavo

Check that the "Time offset (mins)" setting in Options->Calendars for the calendar is set to 0. If it's set to something else you need to change it to 0, export your events to a ics file to remove the offset from the start times.

Hello!
Thanks for this tip!
The calendar offset was indeed nonzero.
Why - beats me. Probably has been from the moment I started to use Rainlendar.
I did not notice this setting before.

Now it works! The PDA syncronises to lightning and both - rainlendar and lightning use the same ics calendar file. And as I use Pegasus mail for emailing (not thunderbird) then Rainlendar is called from mail program with command line option to import meeting requests (afaik Thunderbird/Lihtning cannot be called to add calendar entry from command line)

Thanks!
