Install Caffeine on Fedora 16 and Fedora 17

In this article I will show you how to install Caffeine on Fedora 16 and Fedora 17.

Caffeine is a life saver software. It blocks the PC from suspending, or get the screen locked, when some applications are running.

I use it to disable any kind of suspend or screen saver action when I watch movies (have VLC or Mplayer opened).

1. Download the caffeine*.rpm

  • for x86_64 architecture:
