Bug Description

The evince AppArmor profile seems to miss an entry for /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/mimeinfo.cache.
If evince is launched, the following gets logged to syslog:

kernel: [81577.596186] audit: type=1400 audit(1503306090.062:2011): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="/usr/bin/evince" name="/var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/mimeinfo.cache" pid=32268 comm="evince" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=1000 ouid=0

I don't know if this should be allowed or denied. If you could add the correct behaviour to the profile, that would be nice; otherwise, every time evince is launched, a notification pops up (apparmor-notify installed).


Add to original profile (/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince):
  #include <local/usr.bin.evince>

Insert into local profile (/etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.bin.evince):
  /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/mimeinfo.cache r,

Release: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Package Version: evince-common 3.18.2-1ubuntu4.1

The file is not specific to evince, that's probably better placed in a common file from appamor itself right?

affects: evince (Ubuntu) → apparmor (Ubuntu)

The file itself may be not specific to evince, but the behaviour that evince tries to read it (and AppArmor denies that) is specific to the AppArmor profile file that gets delivered with evince-common (/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince).
That is why i think it affects the package evince or evince-common, to be precise.
