    I couldn’t install this. This works for mint cinnamon as well?

    “Os pacotes a seguir têm dependências desencontradas:
    caffeine : Depende: gir1.2-gtk-2.0 mas não será instalado
    Depende: gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1 mas não será instalado
    Depende: python-kaa-metadata mas não será instalado”
    It’s portuguese. But it says that it won’t install because I dont have these things installed.

    My mistake. Looks like it’s installed, but it’s not working. I put Firefox in the list, but even so the monitor continues to fade to black.
