Evince GTKRecentManager Assertion Failed

When I run evince, nothing!
Running it via the command line gave me some more insight:

~ > evince
Gtk:ERROR:../../../../gtk/gtkrecentmanager.c:1999:get_icon_fallback: assertion failed: (retval != NULL)                                                                                       
Aborted (core dumped)

Appears something is messed up, probably with my GTK setup. Oh dear!

The key part I noticed was gtk/gtkrecentmanager.c, which seems to be talking about “GTK Recent Manager”. So I cleared my current list of recent files.

mv $HOME/.local/share/recently-used.xbel{,-bk}


EDIT: 2021 April 27 This may be caused by firejail. I noticed a similar issue after using evince and firejail.
