NM. I see that this has already been referenced in several bug reports. I'll stay on 3.4.2 until the bug fixes for audio get released in the next version.

Looks like this might be the trigger:

INFO:caffeine.core:Audio playback detected (firefox). Inhibiting.

I've been having an issue with caffeine v3.5.1, where it automatically activates even when I'm not in full-screen mode in any window. (I think it might be getting triggered by browser windows - Firefox.) v3.4.2 doesn't have this issue. Anyone else experiencing this / have a fix/workaround?

If you started noticing that caffeine keeps running in the background, make sure you don't have an application making use of your speakers/mic.

For me, the culprit was speech-dispatcher. I found out because caffeine reported that something called sd-dummy was playing back audio. Strange because there was no audio playing and the speech-dispatcher service was not activated.

When I ran the command pstree -shap $(pidof speech-dispatcher), I got output similar to:

systemd,1
  └─speech-dispatch,114394 --spawn --communication-method unix_socket --socket-path /run/user/1000/speech-dispatcher/speechd.sock
      ├─{speech-dispatch},114395
      └─{speech-dispatch},114396

Which suggests that it was started by systemd! WTF?? How is started by systemd when the service was never enabled to begin with.

Anyways, my current solution was to kill it. You can also try the solution suggested here

If you continue to have it started randomly, then just remove that package.

@yochananmarqos

I do have hicolor-icon-theme installed, though, and it still doesn't work

@sleedy: Apparently hicolor-icon-theme is a missing dependency.

3.5.1 doesn't work on KDE Manjaro; running in the terminal gives this:

/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/caffeine/main.py:61: PyGIWarning: AppIndicator3 was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('AppIndicator3', '0.1') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.

from gi.repository import AppIndicator3

INFO:caffeine.core:Caffeine is starting up...

(caffeine:10901): Gtk-WARNING **: 15:28:52.979: Could not find the icon 'caffeine'. The 'hicolor' theme

was not found either, perhaps you need to install it.

You can get a copy from:

gi.repository.GLib.Error: gtk-icon-theme-error-quark: Icon 'caffeine' not present in theme (null) (0)

Downgrading to 3.4.2 works, and it seems that the way icons are imported was changed in 3.5.1.

Does not launch - this is what you get if launched in the terminal

New 3.5.0 version seems buggy. Caffeine seems to activate constantly, even when I'm not in full-screen mode.

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-01-18 15:13

@pkr: This commit fixes the issue.

Use this PKGBUILD for now

@WhyNotHugo: python-pulsectl is missing from dependencies.
