LXer: Turn off or limit the Recent Documents feature in Ubuntu

Published at LXer:

If you want to turn off the Recent Documents feature in Ubuntu, all you have to do is create a .gtkrc file in your home directory (if one isnít already available): touch ~/.gtkrc-2.0 . Now paste this line in there: gtk-recent-files-max-age=0 . The next time you start Gnome and click on files, the respective files wonít appear anymore in Places > Recent Documents. To limit the number of files that appear in Recent Documents, use gtk-recent-files-limit=3 instead (replace 3 with the number of files you wish to show).
