I haven’t really posted anything new recently as I’ve just had a big transision in my career. I may or may not write about this in the future, as I don’t think it’s that relevant to you.

Anyway, I’ve been having this trouble with window size of Alacritty being too small on launched.First what is Alacritty? It’s an terminal emulator written in Rust. It also makes use of GPU-acceleration, which should improve some performance in theory. I tried to make change to the config file of Alacritty, and it didn’t seem to work so I wasn’t sure I made the right change.

Fast forward to this evening, I did one more Google search, and voilla I found a solution and also figured out why the almost exact change didn’t work for me previously.

Here is a working solution. Edit the ~/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml with the follwing content:

     columns: 133
     lines: 40

The setting above makes Alacritty opening at a window of 133 x 40 wide and height respectively. And the reason it didn’t work for me before, it was because I was scared to set the width and heigh big enough. ^_^

A tiny but quite annoying problem solved for me.
