Asked by Peter Harris

When I try to register the Thunderbird address book in Libre Office Write the option to use Thunderbird doesn't exist.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04, Libre Office 3.3.2 and Thunderbird 3.1.11.
i am using 'File, Templates, Address Book Source'. The only option offered is Bibliography. Any help would be much appreciated.
