Note that python-ewmh is at 0.1.6-1 anyway, so merely upgrading should fix the issue (because it'll rebuild).

If you see an error like:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'XXXXXXXX' distribution was not found and is required by caffeine-ng

Then you probably need to rebuild and reinstall packages build with python3.5 (due to the recent python3.6 upgrade).

You can find a list of these packages running this command:

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.5

Same problem here:
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 849, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'ewmh=0.1.4' distribution was not found and is required by caffeine-ng

aur/python-ewmh 0.1.6-1 [installed] (31) (2.36)

Please check which version of python-ewmh is installed.

Found the missing dependency:
it's libappindicator-gtk3 (not sure whats the difference to libindicator-gtk3)
you should add it as optional dependency for kde plasma 5 support

Matombo commented on 2016-10-05 21:23

When installing this package on Arch or Manjaro-Net-Edition with the plasma-desktop installed. The tray icon is broken: pixilated and doesn't react on right- or leftklick. However when installing the package on Manjaro-KDE-Edition it works just fine.
It looks like a weired missing dependency issue but it doesn't throw any error message.

Yep, after today's updates I successfully switched back to caffeine-ng, too.
