Ever since Thunderbird+Lightning offers immediate bilinear contact with Google Calendar, I have been using it. But there seems to be a problem in my Ubuntu 14.04 installation: Google provider is not working. In fact, Lightning is not allowing me to connect to my Google Calendar account whatsoever!

At this stage I would hope for the "location" input to disappear so that I could use an open session. This is how it works in my other Thunderbird settings (in a Fedora and Mac I have at work) and is how I wanted it to work in the first place. But as it is not working, I then proceed to input my email address, but alas:
As you can see it does not accept it, and so I cannot use the Lightning extension.
