Comment 2 Marek Kašík 2018-06-22 15:13:42 UTC

I've proposed a fix for this issue in https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evince/issues/918. This bug is caused by "application-id" property of evince's GApplication being set to NULL. I'll wait for upstream's decision.

Comment 3 Marek Kašík 2018-07-24 10:35:54 UTC
The patch was accepted. I'm giving this bug devel_ack+.

Comment 5 Tomas Hudziec 2018-07-30 13:41:20 UTC
No critical message while entering presentation mode now with evince-3.28.2-5.el7. Switching to verified.
