When I try to Clear Recent Documents (Application Launcher==>Recently Used
tab) the list of documents "pretends" to be cleared but at the next restart/boot
of the system all the "cleared" documents reappear in the list.
As root, I've cleared out the /tmp folder thinking that this is where
such a list of recently used documents resides but, No, the list still
keeps reappearing. In /home there is also a (hidden) file called
'.recently-used' but it doesn't play a role in this problem.
Anybody know how to make sure that a list of recently used documents
remains deleted? Or better still, how to stop used documents being recorded in this Recently Used tab? (Windows has this ability not to
have documents used recorded in such a list by setting an option in the Start menu.)
file, and one is being recreated from the other upon reboot?
I don't know much about KDE 4 so I couldn't tell you where to look... I
did search Bugzilla for this problem in both 11.0 and 11.1 and found
nothing, so you might need to file one against openSUSE 11.1 at
In oS 11.0 with KDE4 I did some digging and found that the list of
Recently Used files are kept in (the hidden directory)
By deleting the list of files they are removed from Application
Launcher==>Recently Used and won't appear when you reboot.
Now for the quirky part.... :-) .
I stated earlier that you can delete the files from Recently Used list
in the Launcher by using the (intended) normal means of deleting them
(right-click>Clear Recent Documents) but they would re-appear after
reboot; well, what NOW happens is that they do NOT get deleted when you
use Clear Recent Documents (they remain in the Launcher) but disappear
after reboot :-) .
(The same is happening in oS 11.1RC1 but at least now I know that I can
delete these files.)
An update to my "Now for the quirky part...". During the day (yesterday)
some upgrade occurred and it appears that the problem I mention has now
disappeared, ie Clear Recent Documents in the Launcher do get removed.
Be nice to people on your way up - you'll see the same people on your way down.
