Desktop Environment-dependent tools store configuration and temporary files in ~/.local. ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel, as the name suggests, holds a list of recently opened items. Existence of the file or leading directory should not block you (g)editing /etc/fstab, it's not a fatal error. BTW I see you're running tools from the command line while using the root account. You are aware that's not how you should do things, right?

GUI tools--n'est-ce pas?
in the CLI, I edit things like fstab as root all the time.
