Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid):How to disable Recent Documents in Places
This tutorial will explain how to disable Recent Documents in Places in Ubuntu 10.04
Open the terminal and run the following commands
Create .gtkrc-2.0 file in your home directory
Edit .gtkrc-2.0 file
Add the following line
Save and exit the file
You can also use ubuntu tweak for this
Nice! I did this up to Karmic by making “.recently-used.xbel” a directory instead of a file, but that causes just about everything to complain when it runs. I’ll give this a shot.
The best way I find is to use Ubuntu Tweak.
Go to Gnome Settings, and uncheck Enable system-wide “Recent documents list”
In the past I’d used chattr on .recently-used.xbel, but there were always annoying error messages that frightened the easily frighten-able.
Sorry, I cannot do this. I get “permission denied” as root.
I am root (sudo -i) and after following your instructions I get “permission denied”. I have also the file. This does not work, but my documents unfortunately still do.
This works just fine, thanks.
It Works super fine.. Thanks.
Just create a file in your home directory. There’s no need to be root.
Not working since 10.10 🙁
Nice. It worked for me. Ubuntu 10.10. =)
