I’m looking for a way to sync my Thunderbird Lightning calendar I’ve on Kubuntu with my FP2, without using google services. @weste here Calendar sync - thunderbird lightning MyPhoneExplorer seemed to have the same issue with windows and solved it using My Phone Explorer, but this software does not exist for Linux AFAIK. Any chances I can make it work via wine or something? I know it is a very specific situation, but you know other possible solutions?
Perhaps Davdroid from F-Droid can do the trick.
You could use davdroid and either install a server in your home network or use an online hosting service that Supports caldav. I myself use my Posteo Account (a German Email provider) to sync My calendars and it works perfectly.
Can you suggest any easy to use and possibly free online server? I do not have one myself (yet). Also, Is there a way to do it using Dropbox?
Google Calendar ist the only free one that comes to My mind, sorry. Posteo ist just as easy But not free of charge
You can try to find an owncloud hosting somewhere, the calendar synchronization works with both thunderbird and davdroid, and the contacts sync works as well. You can also find a reasonably cheap hosting at some ethical provider like indishosters for instance.
