    It is not possible.. Only way is that you add to panel old gnome menu, clear them and then remove it from panel

    I think that you can disable "Documents" in gconf-editor

    Thanks for the help! Couldn't find anything to erase them, but I did find the option to disable Recent Documents in gconf-editor:

    Applications-> Configuration Editor-> desktop-> gnome-> applications-> main-menu-> lock-down

    showable_file_types [1,2,3,4,5]
    to
    showable_file_types [1,2,4,5]

    Hello

    I'm using SLEDv10-sp2 with the gnome desktop.
    I usually clear the recent documents and recent programs by deleting this file:

    .recently-used

    you have to activate "view / show hidden files" in your /home folder in order to show this file.

    Deleting the .recently-used files wokrs great in openSUSE 11.0; althought the file is called a liitle differently, I think.

    Maybe it's just my system.

    A "Clear Recent Docs" button or option should really be added. Maybe it's in openSUSE 11.1; haven't been able to toy with that yet.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Under 11.1 if you go to the recently used tab and right click. You are given 2 options. You can clear recent applications or documents. Just select the one you want and click on it. It will clear them away. Hope this helps.

    PS.. I would imagine the same thing can be done under 11.0

    mbreno,

    under gnome I am not able to duplicate this ability.

    If only provides Open, Rename, Send, Add, Trash.

    everyone: and for whatever reason when I used
    Code:
    > .recently-used
    > .recently-used.xbel
    to over write the files, the recent docs returned after a few seconds, even though they were removed initially after these commands executed. Weird.
