How to Clear Recent Documents in Gnome opensuse 11.1


Can you please help me to find a way in Gnome opensuse 11.1, to clear the recent documents shown in the computer menu> documents?


I found this hack in the Ubuntu forums:

rm ~/.recently-used.xml
rm ~/.recently-used.xbel
mkdir ~/.recently-used.xbel

It removes the documents from the menu completely.

You can disable via gconf-editor, see my post here;

chief sealth,

I’ve added the commands below to the user’s ~/.profile to have it wiped
automatically upon each login;

#Remove the recently used documents
rm .recently-used
rm .recently-used.xbel
