Alacritty warning

Alacritty now shows a warning that stays at the bottom, appeared after this last update, everything else is ok. It shows this:

[WARN] See log at /tmp/Alacritty-1810.log ($ALACRITTY_LOG):
YAML config "/home/username/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml" is deprecated, please migrate to TOML using `alacritty migrate`

Googling about it I found a similar situation about this: Alacritty throwing errors after Migration from YAML to TOML [WARN unused config] - Issues & Assistance - Garuda Linux Forum

Since some people are having issues with the migration, I please ask for some guidance or advice about this. Thank You.

I would say take a look at the issue tracker.

It seems there are some considerations … like ‘links’ apparently.

If you’re talking about links no longer working, then that is an intended feature and there is not going to be any replacement for this in toml. You should be using imports instead (even with yaml really).

And comments

automatic migration drops all comments

If anything mentioned there is a deal-breaker I suppose you can stick with yaml.

Otherwise alacritty migrate should be a functional command.

See more at the arch wiki


Sorry to respond only now, I posted this at 4 AM and then some sleep.
I did alacritty migrate
Said it did the migration sucessfully but after that it still show some warnings:

[WARN] See log at /tmp/Alacritty-3681.log ($ALACRITTY_LOG):
Unused config key: author
Unused config key: name
Unused config key: theme

Another user has reported similar warnings after migration:

[WARN ] [alacritty_config_derive] Unused config key: author · Issue #7229 · alacritty/alacritty · GitHub
alacritty.log file:
[0.000694499s] [WARN ] [alacritty_config_derive] Unused config key: author

[0.001111311s] [WARN ] [alacritty_config_derive] Unused config key: theme

I suggest edit alacritty configuration ~/.config/alacritty/alacritty.toml to remove unused config keys

Thank you very much for the help, I’m gonna look into that.
I do not have much experience editing config files, I will report if I need some assistance.

In my config file I have this:

theme = "Garuda.dr460nized"

author = "dr460nf1r3"
name = "Garuda (dr460nized)"

black = "0xa6896b"
blue = "0xF35645"
cyan = "0xFAD32F"
green = "0xEB3247"
magenta = "0xF6A73B"
red = "0x5F4149"
white = "0xeec49a"
yellow = "0xBC4349"

cursor = "0xeec49a"
text = "0x0a1124"

black = "0x0a1124"
blue = "0xF35645"
cyan = "0xFAD32F"
green = "0xEB3247"
magenta = "0xF6A73B"
red = "0x5F4149"
white = "0xeec49a"
yellow = "0xBC4349"

background = "0x0a1124"
foreground = "0xeec49a"

LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE = "en_US.UTF-8"
TERM = "alacritty"

size = 11.0

family = "monospace"
style = "Regular" 

So do I just remove the lines:
theme = "Garuda.dr460nized"
author = "dr460nf1r3"
name = "Garuda (dr460nized)"

Just that?

Are you using Garuda or Manjaro?

Please provide the output of:

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width

Using Manjaro XFCE but the color theme on alacritty is garuda dragonized. I really like the colors xD

It’s an old laptop I know…

It’s a very colouful theme, indeed; perhaps too much for my tired eyes.

Inxi: No need, although it might be helpful to someone. I’m not familiar with Alacritty; or, at least, not familiar enough to offer advice with it. I tried it once on macOS, and it (or I) failed miserably, and I haven’t looked at it again.

Good luck.

I edited and provided the inxi output above if you still wanna look into it.

just remove the keys complained about and that’s it

Do I also remove the line [colors] before author = "dr460nf1r3" or just leave it there?
To my understanding the offending lines are:
theme = "Garuda.dr460nized"
author = "dr460nf1r3"
name = "Garuda (dr460nized)"

Try commenting the lines (not the [ ] header) with # and see what happens. You might also consider finding an updated theme (suitable for TOML), which your Garuda.dr460nized theme doesn’t seem to be.

The error message itself gives the command to migrate to the newer format alacritty migrate. The new configuration file should then have a .toml extension, I’m guessing.

I think you can likely download a similar colour theme, and perhaps edit its configuration file to reflect the dr460nized theme colours, though alacritty / alacritty-theme seems to have plenty to choose from otherwise, along with instructions.

I found An Example and Concise Guide to Alacritty Configuration through TOML, which might also be useful.

Beyond this, I have nothing more to offer. Good luck.

Aside:- You might consider obtaining more RAM for this machine, if possible. 4GB is insufficient. 8GB would be preferable for Manjaro.

Thanks for the help, I’m gonna just backup the TOML config file and proceed with the changes.
As for the RAM, Manjaro XFCE works very well even with only 4 GB of RAM, much snappier than Windows 10 or even Windows 8.1
Since support for many apps will end (or ended) on Windows 8.1 (Steam one of them) I started migrating to Manjaro almost 4 years ago, I droped Windows entirely almost 2 years now.

I commented the offending lines on alacritty.toml with # and no more warnings, thank you all for the help.

Click the tick under the post you feel helped you the most, and then this thread can be closed. Cheers.
