After an upgrade to Python 3.11, you need to rebuild this package (and all Python packages in the AUR).

The man page is currently located in usr/share/man/man1/caffeine/caffeine.1.gz. Correct location should be in usr/share/man/man1/caffeine.1.gz.

Using man-db package, it returns "No manual entry for caffeine" when man caffeine is executed.

Anyone who is having problems can try the command below.

For me, it worked.

paru -S --rebuild $(paru -Qqo "/usr/lib/python3.12/site-packages")

python-ewmh is still available here:

It can still be built from source. Ideally, someone can maintain it in the AUR.

Just a kind reminder: python-ewmh is gone from AUR. So I guess caffeine-ng will fail to build.

I'll throw in the extra detail for anyone that needs it - since I use paru, I uninstalled this package, and then removed the cached files in ~/.cache/paru. Doing that for both caffeine-ng and python-pulsectl let me rebuild them on install. Still works in 3.12, as is.

Try rebuilding python-pulsectl for python3.12 too.

rebuild fails with this error:

Program python3 (click, ewmh, setproctitle, pulsectl) found: NO modules: click, ewmh, setproctitle ERROR: python3 is missing modules: pulsectl

EDIT: nevermind, solved rebuilding python-pulsectl

No change is needed for Python 3.12; this package supports it fine. You just need to rebuild locally.

@hmeiser2000 You need to rebuild and reinstall the package, because Arch upgraded python to v3.12.

Since last Systemupdate caffeine is not working anymore:

└─[0] <> caffeine Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/caffeine", line 3, in <module> from caffeine.cli import cli ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'caffeine'

I don't know which packet changed. Anybody else got this problem?
