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.

I needed to install the python-ewmh package.
Might need to add this as a dependency.

just rebuilding python-ewmh worked for me.

@manuelschneid3r This is the normal "build". I'll try to make logging configurable (as a feature) when I get a chance.

Is this a debug build or is the application printing that much info by default? caffeine pollutes the journalctl
