For me, the fix in comment #2 worked only after I restarted apparmor:

sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor restart

  Permission error saving a file

Status in evince package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On Ubuntu 15.10, using evince 3.16.1-0ubuntu1, I fill out a PDF form.
  When I save the form, I get the message "Error renaming temporary
  file: Permission denied", and the file is not saved. I don't have
  permissions trouble in any other apps.

  The problem happens only when I'm using a filesystem that I mount in
  /mnt, and not for example in my home directory or in /tmp. Although I
  launch evince from the terminal, there are no unusual error messages
  printed there. However, journalctl shows a string of error messages
  (see attached log).
