Thank you for responding. Yes, lightning is installed but I guess it is
not stand alone. It is an add-on to seamonkey or thunderbird. I have
been using sunbird as a stand alone application for my desktop
calendar which I now cannot access. 

/usr/ports/deskutils/lightning> cat pkg-message 
In order to activate the Lightning extension, every user should install
the XPI file into his own profile via the menu:

Tools -> Add-ons -> Install (for Thunderbird)
- or -
Tools -> Add-on Manager -> Install (for Seamonkey)


I installed seamonkey and performed the above but it is not obvious as
to how to bring up a calendar.

Thanks again
