It seems that the Thunderbird integration to Ubuntu is taking some time, and I'm okay with that, I have workarounds for most things like keeping Thunderbird open in the notification area, but there is one thing: the Lightning notifications about events (not Ubuntu's native notifications, but rather Lightning's pop-up window notifications), which I set usually to one hour before the event starts, never appear on time. They do appear, but much later on, and when I see them it's usually after the event is finished. I checked if it's a timezone problem in Thunderbird or Ubuntu, but in both places the timezone is set correctly. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance!

Have you managed to solve this problem or are you still looking for help? It sounds rather like a bug, perhaps you could file a bug report? Instructions on filing a bug report are here. – coversnail Apr 14 '12 at 20:04
Oh, I completely forgot about this! In one of the updates it was fixed, and now I don't have the problem anymore. It's as good as solved. What should I do with this question now? – Zorbama Apr 14 '12 at 20:10
You can just add the answer yourself "solved by an update" and accept it :)] – coversnail Apr 14 '12 at 20:13
