Maybe I misunderstood you, because the instructions seem quite straightforward. In Claws Mail just click on Configuration -> Plugins... -> Load... and it should direct you right to the plugin directory where you find the vcalender.so ( this should be something like /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/claws-mail/plugins )

If the folder is empty, it's safe to delete. It's possible there are hidden files inside, though. Use a terminal to cd into it and then run ls to list all files inside. If nothing shows, delete it.

Alternative way to toggle the menu This answer is only "half" of the answer that was posted here . Since that question was on Gnome, and tagged likewise, I think it is legitimate to post a slightly edited version here to cover Lubuntu (lxde), or any other window manager.
