I am using Fedora 26 and i installed it from python pip they says that the version i installed is fork of 2.4 but this only package that i could find for fedora i tried to use source but it's just gave me more error when i try to run the version that i installed from pip it gives me the error

The Command I used For install
pip2 install caffeine-ng

i suggest to make the program universal for all distribution through pip you programed a good program and you used good language that work on all distro >>>> it will be a good idea to distribute through pip officially and give it a good maintenance instead of launchpad and debian .

i tried the commands on like build_ext and building rpm pkg and all give me ressult but the build don'twork with a lots of error

If you want to use caffeine-ng, you'll need to report the bug to caffeine-ng, not here (this is the original Caffeine project).

If you want to use Caffeine, that's fine. There is currently no pip distribution of Caffeine, and I don't know anything about rpm packaging of Caffeine, only Debian packaging.

I'd be happy to have some help getting it on PyPI, but I don't use PyPI much myself, so it's not something I plan to spend time on.

This bug report is for a build error for another package (caffeine-ng). Therefore, it is invalid.
