The communication between Evince and Emacs works over DBUS with
`TeX-evince-sync-view'.  During the time GNOME 3 was released, there
were several changes in its DBUS interface.  It seems you are using a
slightly outdated version of AUCTeX.  Could you please try the git

That's as easy as

  $ git clone git://
  $ cd auctex
  $ ./configure
  $ make

and placing

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq TeX-data-directory "/home/horn/Repos/el/auctex/")
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/Repos/el/auctex/")
(load "auctex.el" nil t t)
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/Repos/el/auctex/preview/")
(load "preview-latex.el" nil t t)
(add-to-list 'Info-directory-list "~/Repos/el/auctex/doc")

;; below your usual AUCTeX configurations
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

into your .emacs.  Of course, you have to adapt the paths above to your
local auctex clone.

Earlier Evince versions up to 3.0.0 sent a DBUS signal with 2
parameters, versions starting with 3.0.0 send 3 parameters.  At least
the current AUCTeX git version handles both cases, but your version
seems to accept only two.

You need to enable `TeX-source-correlate-mode'.
