I was wondering... I have the Lightning plugin installed on Thunderbird, and I was wondering if I could have Calenders automatically opened in Thunderbird/lightning, instead of Gedit?

The only reason I'm asking, is because in the "Change Program" area, it only shows Gedit as an option. (Click Here to see image. I can't post images until I have 10 rep)
