Discussion about Seamonkey builds
>> How about (default) User Agent. Will it inform now about "integrated" Calendar/Lightning? I hope it will not..
If you disable lightning in your profile it will not. Otherwise yes.
And can be suppressed with just blanking calendar.useragent.extra in about:config
I'd like to use Calendar but I don't see any reasonable reason to make UA depends on such thing. Why change UA when using Calendar? It is good to have an option to disable such useless thing.
I was not using Lightning extension because of lack of compatibility while updating SM... and lack of Modern theme. I hope it will work far more better now.
I think the official justification for adding it to the HTTP string (but not the one used for mail) is that some calendar provider are expecting it to enable certain features.
I'll work out a patch to expose this in the HTTP Networking preferences, similar to the Firefox compatibility token, thus users can switch it on and off easier.
The patch for a new checkbox works and is posted in bug 1275679, but given that IanN seems to be busy and the merges are happening in 10 days, I don't think this will get reviewed in time for SeaMonkey 2.46 (thus keeping fingers crossed for 2.47).
I've also got some feedback from the Calendar team on the function of that UA addition:
He therefore advises against being able to disable this via the UI, but I think we should have it there for the same reason that we are exposing the Firefox pref as a checkbox. I have added though a warning underneath that group to add a "don't touch this if you don't know what you are doing" context to this.
As an update, the patch for the UA-addition opt-out checkbox landed on Friday (for 2.47 as expected, no chance to get this earlier due to string changes) and should be visible on current trunk builds (where official nightlies are built for Linux right now only, there are ongoing issues with the Windows loaner).
Trunk is busted because of bug 1282286 so a build won't show up right now : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1282286
But a local Windows build with a few private fixes works fine with the option. Seems I can't attach a picture here to show it.
The 25-Jun-2016 nightly was still built before that bustage and already contains the prefpane addition. Note that Lightning is disabled by default on trunk, thus you won't see the new checkbox before Lightning is enabled in the Add-ons Manager.
Yeah, that's on purpose, not to overburden the server.
If there someone who can give us the complete step by step guide to create a setup after doing some customisation. If there is step by step guide even for customiation, that will be great.
What do you mean with "customization" given the many levels of use?
Remote calendars, event defaults, changes in the Lightning user interface, etc.?
Edit > Preferences > Calendar has the basic settings needed.
As a minimum, make sure that the time zone is correct.
For Lightning-specific questions, you can also use the Calendar forum.
