*Disclaimer - I have probably caused this :rofl: New laptop blues :musical_note:

Top terminal is alacritty window.opacity: 0.0
Bottom terminal is konsole - transparent!!!

Window manager is Qtile, graphics:

Just been down the rabbit hole of “shit, picom is not working!” Picom of course was not the problem!!!

Any ideas?

Share your alacritty config.

Found it! The configuration syntax has change. Replace:

window.opacity: 0.0

## with:

window:
  opacity: 0.0

4 hours of my life I will not get back :rofl:

But… alacritty does not complain about window.opacity, it normally whinges about config file errors e.g.
