Opera fails to start under F26, was fine with F25

Code:
/usr/lib64/opera/opera: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libharfbuzz.so.0: undefined symbol: FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates
Server has been successively upgraded through all the earlier versions for years in case that's any help. I did some Googling and it throws up references to old fonts, but I'd like to know if that really is the issue and how it should be dealt with properly and safely.

Everything else works fine, in fact it's a nice job.

which build of opera are you using? the fedora repository one or upstream from opera's own repository?

[SOLVED]

You put me on the right lines. I did a dnf uninstall opera, then followed the instructions here http://rpm.opera.com/manual.html but used "opera-stable" rather than "opera-developer".
Thanks.

Re: Opera fails to start under F26, was fine with F25

look in the folder etc/yum.repos.d for an opera.repo file. if it isn't there you are running the fedora build.

have you tried re-installing the browser anyhow?

possibly an issue with infinality fonts if you have them installed. it's not compatible with freetype currently.

In my case it wasn't just Opera it was the entire gdm/Wayland subsystem after F25 to F26 upgrade.

Booted into single user mode, saw the error message in the logs to do with the missing symbol, did a

Code:
rpm -qa | grep infinality
and then did a

Code:
sudo dnf remove blah
for each of the packages that came up.
