Opera Not Showing Text In File Upload

  • Hi,

    I am a new Opera user, I use Manjaro Linux and downloaded the newest Opera Developer browser from the Snapcraft store.

    The Browser works well except for when I try to upload files from my filesystem through the browser, Opera doesn't show me the folders name or even the files name. instead, it shows empty squares instead of actual English letters.
    my browser's language is English.

    I have searched a solution for it online and did not find any, I hope you can help me,
    thanks in advance.

  • I'm having the same problem. Here's a image of me trying to select a file to upload to this post.1beee4db-ddef-43bc-9c4c-fe41c2888b8f-image.png

    You are also running the MATE desktop environment, right?

  • @sophon96 Well actually my desktop environment is Gnome, but maybe it's something specifically with the Manjaro distro...

  • @nadavatar64 I'm a noob at Linux, but from some quick googling, it turns out that MATE is a continuation of Gnome 2, so maybe it's just Gnome. I'll try running a vm using a different de.

    Edit : Actually, it seems to be a issue with snap. I installed Discord with snap and when uploading files, it also shows squares.
