“Failed to get bus connection: The connection is closed” error while opening PDF using Evince in Terminal

While opening PDF file in Terminal, you may encounter error message saying, “Failed to get bus connection: The connection is closed”.

evince file_name.pdf
Failed to get bus connection: The connection is closed

This occurs due to root access. You cannot open PDF file using Evince in Terminal while in administrative or root mode. Try this in normal mode, and voila!
Just do the same thing while in normal user mode, it would work as it is supposed to.
