Adding Action Bar in ListActivity

In my ListActivity i have to display an action bar but i cant. i have searched on the internet, all links tell me to change my app theme to holo.light but that doesnt work as when i do that my ribbit app crashes. I think that is because my main activity is extending action bar activity Main activity displays the action bar I want the action bar in my recipientsActivtity which extends ListActivty. How can i do that in android Studio?

Instead of ListActivity you have to extend your activity with ActionBarActivity and use a ListView to display the list, this is the only solution I find.
