The Archlinux version also isn’t using the latest possible version of winit and glutin, which are responsible for handling windows and Wayland, so I’d recommend testing the latest master if you’re running into any issues.

Whats the output of alacritty --version? Can you launch it with alacritty --print-events and try pressing any keys? Any input doesn’t work or IME stuff?
