Latest version of caffeine-ng should work fine with setproctitle 1.1.10 (or later versions).

Thanks for that @wolfyrion. caffeine stopped working for me too, and your solution fixed it for me. I also have the same python-setproctitle as you (the latest 1.1.10-1).

I have it install but is the version

python-setproctitle Version 1.1.10-1

Caffeine required

setproctitle==1.1.09 thats why was giving errors

so I had to change
requires.txt to setproctitle==1.1.10

@wolfyrion: Looks like you don't have the dependency python-setproctitle installed.

I was able to install it now. However, I still can't use it. I just see an icon on my tray but I'm not able to click it.
That's probably some kde plasma DE issue though.....

edit: perfectly working when started from terminal. I can live without a working indicator :)

python-setuptools was missing a a dependency. Added it.

getting an error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 3, in <module>
from setuptools import setup, find_packages
ImportError: No module named 'setuptools'

edit: turns out setuptools was a python package ^^
However, I still can't install the package even after installing setuptools

The error you're getting makes no sense. What's the output of python --version?

Tried re-building earlier and I simply get:
