Spent a long time fighting with this package to get it to build Disabling the "debug" switch in the pkgbuild prevents the DWARF debugging related errors. Remove all lto relating cflags and ldflags from your makepkg.conf

@samhh Please update your rust version.

Compilation fails for me:

Compiling font v0.1.0 (file:///home/user/.cache/aurman/alacritty-git/src/alacritty/font) error[E0658]: use of unstable library feature 'pointer_methods' (see issue #43941) --> font/src/ft/fc/ | 102 | let ptr = (self.font_set.as_ptr()).fonts.add(self.current); | ^^^

error: aborting due to previous error

FFY00 but this is a -git package, are you planning to rebuild it after every commit?

Hey, I want to move this to [community]. Is that ok with you?

desktop-file-install is part of the desktop-file-utils package. Please add that to the makedepends.

update-desktop-database hook already exists so no need to have a install file. Please remove it.

edit: realised you are not using the install file after reading the PKGBUILD, sorry for the noise :)

@kveldulf Alacritty support for Wayland is experimental, I'm assuming you're using Gnome on Wayland, and so you'll see weird behavior like that. IIRC running alacritty on XWayland helps mitigate the weirdness.

When trying to launch alacritty I was welcomed with "No backend available".

I fixed it by installing libxcursor so likely you want to add it as a dependency

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but I installed this and whenever I click the Alacritty icon in my favorites bar in GNOME it opens a new icon that says "Unknown" and the UI is pretty weird, and it doesn't have basic features like holding a key down won't repeatedly input the value. Am I missing something?
