How does one clear Konqueror's history?


The subject basically says it all. I am getting sick of 10 thousand things coming up every time I type in "www.linuxquestions.org" since Konqueror seems to list all the sites you have been to on that domain, rather annoying. Thanks for the help!

Been looking at naughty sites again?

I believe that, as with almost everything in Linux, there will be a simple text file to edit. Try looking in your home directory, possibly under .konqueror (it might actually be under .kde/konqueror or something) - note: those are directories, not files.

Actually I am the only user of this machine and it is not in a public area so anything I view is for my eyes only, that said I actually do get annoyed with all the damn things in the list when I am trying to go to a site I go to often with many sub pages(i.e. forums). Thanks for the help.

For anyone who cares the file that holds the history info is:
~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/konq_history
Thanks for the help Thymox!

Aw, you can take a bit of ribbing, can't you? I know just how annoying the ol' history thing is. Luckily for me, my University clears the local IE history whenever you log out, so not only do I not have everyone else's pages in the list, but I also don't have mine. Personally I don't like having a history. If it's a page I visit frequently, I have a bookmark to it, I don't need the address bar telling me. Anyway, hope it helps - was it a plain text file, BTW? Just curious because I'd never actually taken a peek at it.

Actually it was a binary file. I just renamed it and checked and it worked.

Unhappy

hmmmm, if anyone is still reading this post, I deleted the konq_history file, but my history is still there. Any ideas?

I'm running Konqueror 2.2.1

Spinx.. If you go into konqueror and put in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/konq_history
in the location bar, hit enter a word file should show up. Highlight everything and delete it all, when you exit save it and wa-la - its gone!
