How To Install Caffeine Plus 2.7.2 On Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivatives

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Caffeine is an interesting app that prevents the activation of screensaver or lock screen when full screen windows are opened.

Unfortunately, the latest versions of Caffeine do not come with the AppIndicator that allowed the users toggle the screensaver, so a third party developer has forked it under the name of Caffeine Plus, which has the features of Caffeine 2.7 (prevents the screensaver to appear when full screen apps are opened) + a the toggle screensaver AppIndicator.

The latest version available is Caffeine Plus 2.7.2, which has been added to the WebUpd8 PPA from its Git repository.
