Personally I find Gnome’s `Recent documents` feature quit annoying. In earlier versions I always disabled it like this. Unfortunately that didn’t work anymore… Apparently .recently-used.xbel has moved to a new location (thanks ade). It is now in ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel. So this should do the trick:

rm ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel -Rf;
mkdir ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel -p;

  1. Thanks, that did the trick in Xubuntu 12.04 as well. I don’t want anyone using by box to find my precious pr0n movies… ­čśŤ At least not that easy. =)

  2. That worked! Thanks!
