Tex Live in fedora has problems, many packages are broken or not included. You'd better reinstall using the installer from the tex-live website, add PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH to the .bashrc file in your home folder (edit as root) after the installation and if the problem is still there... well we'll figure something.

Well, seems that xelatex is broken in F26. The best workaround I found was to compile .tex with luatex.

Seems like a recurring bug as per stated by .

Luatex works quite the same with some adjustments to .cls.

Hope this help
