With the bundled desktop file, the caffeine icon looks blurry for me in KDE Plasma [a]. However, if I quit and relaunch caffeine, it looks crisp. On my system, adding a delay to the desktop file also results in a crisp icon [b]. I'm not sure if the caffeine launch should wait until some other process is complete, but the sleep hack works fine, i.e. change the line to Exec=/usr/bin/sleep 20 && /usr/bin/caffeine.

Would be great if possible!

Hmm.. make make sense to make changes upstream and add a flag to determine if appdindicators are used or not.

I tried to figure out what is happening and looks like network-manager-applet pulled libappindicator-gtk3 as new dependency in a recent update (June 22):

Is it possible to build caffeine without appindicator usage? Maybe make a different package with corresponding build options?

I think I remember the left-click toggle on/off working a while back. Not sure when/why that changed. Kind of a nuisance though.

@emontenegro Sounds like something produced by using appindicators, not something that can be controlled on the caffeine side.

Is it possible to switch caffeine just with left click on icon? Now works just popup menu via right click, then Enable - Disable... (Manjaro i3)

WhyNotHugo commented on 2019-12-09 10:21 seems to be down right now, I'll update the URL at some point when it's back up.

FWIW, the static, predictable URL for the PyPI package is
