Alacritty is not working properly

Well, this problem is going on for some day,
the alacritty is not properly working ,
whenever i open it ,it is too much minimized that i can't even figure it out on the screen , when i maximized it from assigned shortcut key then it's neither transparent nor blur , it's just opaque .
you can see here:


May be it could be solved by any power user through hacking on .config files but I am a normal user :sweat_smile:

Well, this thing happpened after an update.

Please help, because I can also notice some speed reduction on comparison with Konsole terminal when ever i run any command.
Thanks in advance........... :blush:

Could all this (minimizing, no transparency, speed reduction) be due to this?

I'm no Wayland expert, just noticed.
Maybe you could also give a look at the Alacritty page in the Arch Wiki (e.g. Troubleshooting, Different font size on multiple monitors, if this is the case).

Yeah that can be a problem, as i remember that in update list before this problem was ,there was kwin also included,
I will try arch wiki ....

i have replaced alacritty with alacritty-git , I got the speed back
then configured for opacity and changed font congifuration in alacritty.yml:




# Configuration for Alacritty, the GPU enhanced terminal emulator.

  # check the local terminfo database and use `alacritty` if it is
  # available, otherwise `xterm-256color` is used.

# WinPTY backend (Windows only)

# Alacritty defaults to using the newer ConPTY backend if it is available,
# since it resolves a lot of bugs and is quite a bit faster. If it is not

    #modifiers: None

# Mouse bindings
#
# Mouse bindings are specified as a list of objects, much like the key
# bindings further below.
#
# To trigger mouse bindings when an application running within Alacritty captures the mouse, the
# `Shift` modifier is automatically added as a requirement.
#
# Each mouse binding will specify a:
#
# - `mouse`:
#
#   - Middle
#   - Left
#   - Right
#   - Numeric identifier such as `5`
#
# - `action` (see key bindings)
#
# And optionally:
#
# - `mods` (see key bindings)
#mouse_bindings:
#  - { mouse: Middle, action: PasteSelection }

# Key bindings
#
# Key bindings are specified as a list of objects. For example, this is the
# default paste binding:
#
# `- { key: V, mods: Control|Shift, action: Paste }`
#
# Each key binding will specify a:
#
# - `key`: Identifier of the key pressed
#
#    - A-Z
#    - F1-F24
#    - Key0-Key9
#
#    A full list with available key codes can be found here:
#    https://docs.rs/glutin/*/glutin/event/enum.VirtualKeyCode.html#variants
#
#    Instead of using the name of the keys, the `key` field also supports using
#    the scancode of the desired key. Scancodes have to be specified as a
#    decimal number. This command will allow you to display the hex scancodes
#    for certain keys:
#
#       `showkey --scancodes`.
#
# Then exactly one of:
#
# - `chars`: Send a byte sequence to the running application
#
#    The `chars` field writes the specified string to the terminal. This makes
#    it possible to pass escape sequences. To find escape codes for bindings
#    like `PageUp` (`"\x1b[5~"`), you can run the command `showkey -a` outside
#    of tmux. Note that applications use terminfo to map escape sequences back
#    to keys. It is therefore required to update the terminfo when changing an
#    escape sequence.
#
# - `action`: Execute a predefined action
#
#   - ToggleViMode
#   - Copy
#   - Paste
#   - PasteSelection
#   - IncreaseFontSize
#   - DecreaseFontSize
#   - ResetFontSize
#   - ScrollPageUp
#   - ScrollPageDown
#   - ScrollLineUp
#   - ScrollLineDown
#   - ScrollToTop

#   - Right
#   - First
#   - Last

#   - High

#   - WordLeftEnd
#   - Bracket
#   - ToggleNormalSelection
#   - ToggleLineSelection
#   - ToggleBlockSelection
#   - ToggleSemanticSelection
#
#   (macOS only):
#   - ToggleSimpleFullscreen: Enters fullscreen without occupying another space
#
#   (Linux/BSD only):
#   - CopySelection: Copies into selection buffer
#
# - `command`: Fork and execute a specified command plus arguments
#
#    The `command` field must be a map containing a `program` string and an
#    `args` array of command line parameter strings. For example:
#       `{ program: "alacritty", args: ["-e", "vttest"] }`
#
# And optionally:
#
# - `mods`: Key modifiers to filter binding actions
#
#    - Command
#    - Control
#    - Option
#    - Super
#    - Shift
#    - Alt
#
#    Multiple `mods` can be combined using `|` like this:
#       `mods: Control|Shift`.

What if you try changing this to 0 and 0 ?
Just an idea...

I tried it but nothing happened :cry:

Jokes aside, but when i run alacritty from alacritty
then it showed this:

╭─[email protected] in ~ took 2s
 ╰─λ alacritty
xkbcommon: ERROR: couldn't find a Compose file for locale "en_IN" (mapped to "en_IN.ISO8859-1")

Maybe check:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Alacritty#Different_font_size_on_multiple_monitors
e.g. WINIT_X11_SCALE_FACTOR=1.66 alacritty (trying various values)...

Maybe check also launching with:
WAYLAND_DISPLAY= alacritty

Try also to uncomment this and check also the other values

when i used it without sudo nothing happened
but when i used sudo , I was glad to see this:

alacritty is not minized but when i opned it after restart , it is still minimized

It also shows these kinds of message

 ╭─[email protected] in ~ took 20s
 ╰─λ sudo WINIT_X11_SCALE_FACTOR=1.66 alacritty
Created log file at "/tmp/Alacritty-79188.log"
[2021-11-16 13:50:15.405402772] [WARN ] [alacritty_config_derive] Config warning: background_opacity is deprecated; use window.opacity instead

ok I will try

I tried all but nothing worked :cry:

You should never use sudo for such things.
I think you also risk that the configuration file in your home becomes owned by root instead of user.
The warning in red seems to say that the alacritty-git (which is newer) needs to use window.opacity but found background_opacity in your configuration file, which is the one used by the older version of alacritty (not the -git one).
In my opinion you should try to clean up this aspect.
You could take /usr/share/doc/alacritty/example/alacritty.yml (which should be the one of the last installed (-git) but has everything commented, careful) and compare with $HOME/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml

I would like to say that , it's a problem with wayland
when i am in wayland session then this happens

Display: wayland server: X.Org 1.21.1.3 compositor: kwin_wayland driver: loaded: modesetting,nvidia

but in x11 It's totally fine

Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.21.1.1 compositor: kwin_x11

but i don't like x11 because it's too slow and there is too much heat up in X11
wayland is a perfect thing for me but it has bugs and I think this is one of them.

And i have compared both files too but i don't notice any problem (may be because i am playing with .config files for the first time)

If you have more Ideas then please tell me..............

I'm sorry, we'll need someone else to help with Wayland.
I have never tried using it with KDE (due to these known issues I often read of), and I'm fine in terms of performance with X11.

Now i found one trick to maximize my alacriitty (may be for someone else it will be unethical),
i just installed

kwin-scripts-tiling-git

and enabled with some configuration from kwin scripts and now i am glad to see my alacritty again maximized and also glad to have tiling function in KDE because i wanted tiling but also wanted to have app menu at the same time and here is how it looks:

It's awesome for me to have tiling window manager for KDE
