I'm getting an error when trying to run caffeine, how do I fix this?

pkg_resources.ContextualVersionConflict: (six 1.9.0 (/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages), Requirement.parse('six>=1.10.0'), {'python-xlib'})
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'six>=1.10.0' distribution was not found and is required by python-xlib

Thanks for pointing it out. Updated!

Thanks for maintaining this! The .install file isn't necessary any more as Pacman will automatically run those commands as hooks (

installing libappindicator-gtk3 breaks the timer functionality in the tray icon (it just goes missing) for me on both kde plasma and gnome (different computers). Works fine without it.

Developer here. I don't *think* this'll work on wayland. What compositor are you using? The tray icon SHOULD show up it sway. Not sure about others. Also, maybe installing `libappindicator-gtk3` makes a difference?

I'm currently working on a version that'll properly support wayland, but it's still very green, TBH.

Does this work on Wayland for anyone? The app seems to launch without any errors for me when I run it from a terminal but the tray icon is not visible.

The package was bumped (due to a new release), but some people update their pythons after others, so there are still issues.

I agree that having this in community would be great, but you need a TU to commit to that (I'm not a TU, obviously).

Returning to the discussion about the need of rebuilding the package (for no reason besides of me having time to write a comment :)). caffeine-ng has only one AUR dependency, python-ewmh. I think, bumping those two packages whenever python gets updated would solve the recurrent startup problem. The best solution would be probably to get it into community/ repo since caffeine-ng is really useful, sufficiently popular imho and, as I said, has only one AUR dependency.

@hobarrera: Sorry, my bad!

@matschi: python-ewmh is already listed as a dependency.
