Thunderbird – GoogleMail

You want to add the Google calendar tab in your thunderbird but you don’t want to use the standard google mail calendar, but the one setup for your domain.

Install the Google Calendar add on in Thunderbird:

Tools -> Addons -> Get Add-ons and then search for Calendar (Google Calendar Tab)

The when thunderbird is restarted go and change the default domain for logging in to the calender in:

Tools – Add-ons -> Extensions

and select the Preferences in the Google Calendar Tab.

from there select the ‘Google Apps for your domain’ and then change the URL into something like:


Help! I’m getting the message “ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory” I know ImageMagick is installed! What should I do?

Cannot install RMagick as there is an error about nob being able to find some shared libraries.

After reading the RMagick installation FAQ it seem there is a problem with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH that cannot find the needed libraries as they are installed in /usr/local/lib instead of /usr/lib.
Doing a quick search revealed that people suggest that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH shouldn’t be changed, for various reasons.
So, the quick solution is to create a couple of symbolic links for the libraries that cannot be found, ie:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
