Alacritty deprecated theme variant?

I am getting this error when I open up alacritty. I have tried garuda assistant to reset the alacritty config, but that did not help. Any ideas?

[0.000303847s] [WARN ] [alacritty_config_derive] Config warning: gtk_theme_variant has been deprecated; use window.decorations_theme_variant instead

Of course, just do what the message tells you to do.

Open your alacritty.yml in ~/.config/alacritty and

replace gtk_theme_variant with window.decorations_theme_variant

There should be only 1 instance to replace if you use the default config file. At least that was the case with last Spring's ISO.

funny sometimes when you look and read something. In your head things seem so jumbled instead of just logically following directions. Thanks!

Yup! Happened to me way too many times already. :slight_smile:
Even that msg I had to read it multiple times before my brain finally clicked and said "Oh, is it THAT simple? The solution is in the warning msg, how often do I see that?"

And actually yes it worked. loll

I guess this should go also in our config...
