Is there any applet which is similar to caffeine for Ubuntu 13.04. I noticed they didn't make ppa for 12.10 and 13.04. So is there any other applet similar to caffeine?

Regards.

Can't say I know of any alternative app(s).

And, can't remember where I got it, but...

Caffeine is installed on this machine, and it works. ;)

The quantal version of caffeine works fine on raring...

$ apt-cache policy caffeine
caffeine:
Installed: 2.4.1+464~quantal1
