    Have you had a look at this file?
    Code:
    ~/.gnome2/evince/ev-metadata.xml
    Most gnome applications store settings in a registry called "~/.gnome2".

    PRO-TIP: If you use the "find" command line utility, you can find any file name you want. For example:
    Code:
    find ~/.gnome2 -iname '*evince*'
    To search the contents of files, for example to search for file names, you can use "grep"
    Code:
    grep -il 'some-file\.pdf' -R ~/.gnome2
