get rid of GNOME 3 recent items ......

Posted 07-02-2011 at 04:37 AM by dEnDrOn

when u press windows key and search for anything.......some recently used items too pop up and they may sometime really risk the privacy.....
all you have to do is just delete this file--->
and then restarting computer(or ALT+F2+r+ENTER) removes recent items but they are again help you again
could have been much simpler...

    I use this technique for xfce/openbox:
    # rm ~user/.recently-used.xbel
    # touch ~user/.recently-used.xbel
    # chattr +i ~user/.recently-used.xbel
    removing it or pointing it to /dev/null is useless: it will be removed by filemanagers/apps and then replaced with new data.
