Alacritty does not start / Garuda-Setup-Assistant does not update

Hi all,

After I hopefully managed my Boot-Problems, I have to new problems:

  1. Alacritty does not start
    I get after around one minute a completely empty window.

alacritty -vvv shows the following:

I have tried the following:

  • Download new config from Gitlab and copied the config from /etc/skel, but this doesn't change anything.
  1. Problem with the Garuda-Setup-Assistant
    As soon as I want to start it, there is a update shown. But this is not possible to install.

I shows the error that the packet is broken, or the checksum is wrong, and afterwards pacman asks to delete the file. Here the german fault:

sudo pacman -S garuda-setup-assistant

I already tried to update the chaotic-keyrings and to add manually keys like written on this page:

Thanks for your help

Hi all,
I fixed the problem with alacritty.
Just add the following line to

/etc/enviroment

#
# This file is parsed by pam_env module
#
# Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on separate lines
#
WINIT_X11_SCALE_FACTOR=1

It seams that there is a problem with screens with high resolution. Mine works with 5120x1440.
