Can't open external file links in Document Viewer


I've been wondering how I configure Evince/Document Viewer to let it open files on my device?

When I tried to do so, this error pops up in Evince: Security alert: "this document has been prevented from opening the file"

I wondered if it might have to do with app armor, and so ran:
sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince /etc/apparmor.d/disable/usr.bin.evince
sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor restart

That didn't resolve my issue. Could you help me out?

Thanks for your fast reply! I suppose I will need to use a different PDF Viewer then :sweat_smile:
