Bug Description

Upstream URL:

Binary package hint: evince

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
Release: 15.04

2) apt-cache policy evince
  Installed: 3.14.1-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 3.14.1-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 3.14.1-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected to happen is when one opens the following attachment, scrolls down to the bottom right, to the right of "Nom et signature" click the field and an pop up opens to insert a picture file, as it does in Adobe Reader https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/426145/+attachment/705192/+files/form_fiche_evalrisq.pdf .

4) What happens instead is this is not a clickable option. First reproduced in Ubuntu 9.04 evince 2.26.1-0ubuntu1.

WORKAROUND: Open with LibreOffice Draw and insert the picture.
