I get the same message. I don't know why it would be trying to execute audacious here. Doesn't really make much sense.

Thank you for your bug report, that seems an apparmor issue. It's trying to run audacious because you probably made that the default handler for directories...

reply to comment #6: in fact it was a clean and fresh install, so my best guess is there's something wrong in the development side.

there were no changes in the default handler for directories on my side (user).

The default software being buggy seems like a lubuntu issue then, apparmor could allow to run audacious from evince but I'm not sure that's the right user experience...

Wierd thing is I am not getting it in a live session when I was getting it before from a file in my downloads directory. I had saved some podcasts there. Although in the live seisson the pdf was saved in /tmp.
