Bug Description

After installing caffeine from Software Boutique, the launcher icon should appear in the menus, but it doesn't start the indicator, which is what we expect it to start. I've solved it by editing /usr/share/applications/caffeine.desktop, at the line where it says "Exec=/usr/bin/caffeine", change to "Exec=/usr/bin/caffeine-indicator".

summary: - caffeine-indicator won't start because of wrong "exec="

You're not supposed to run caffeine indicator from caffeine.desktop, but from caffeine-indicator.desktop.
