When I open a document from Evince (File-Open) I always get a window

I don't have a directory called Documents.
Me either, but I don't see that error. But that might be because I've
customised something else. I don't think Evince is hardcoded to that
location, but is using XDG environment variables for its starting point.
There's an xdg folders/file thingo that presets standard directories
used for certain things, (documents, downloads, etc.). Programs using
those common file types, will use those locations by default (Evince,
, Firefox, etc.).
In my case, I've set them to ~/local/documents/, ~/local/downloads/,
etc., and created those locations, since I want a less cluttered
homespace, and since I have a similar ~/server/documents/ and
~/server/downloads/, etc., that I usually use, and I want a simple way
to keep things in order.
For system-wide configuration, see:
Read the opening comments in both of them. If you dump all your files
into ~/data/, for instance, you could set all the locations to the same
[tim@localhost ~]$ uname -r
