on my test system (openSUSE 13.1) I upgraded to Kde 4.13. I notice that dolphin has a new “history” place in the “places” panel (i.e. it shows what I visited yesterday , today etc…).
I loathe things like these. How can I switch this off? I mean not only the display of the information in the places panel but the very fact that Dolphin collects and saves this info somewhere. You can’t switch this off in the Dolphin config menu.
Hi, thank you both. I’ll try to edit the bookmarks.html file. I hope that’ll switch the history off.
I didn’t have that history with Nepomuk (at least that I know of). Baloo doesn’t bother me (yet?). As I had Nepomuk switched off (told it not to lindex files), the 4.13 installer was clever enough to add my home dir to the files ecluded from the indexer, so that , apparently, Baloo didn’t ever start. Anyway, Thanks again. Lenwolf
This was only shown, if Nepomuk’s file indexing was turned ON, as file indexing is required for this functionality.

Apparently just having Baloo not index anything is not sufficient to turn off that history display.
I guess you would have to disable file indexing by setting “Indexing-Enabled=false” in ~/.kde4/share/config/baloo-filerc, or by uninstalling “baloo-file” completely.
You could also try to uninstall “baloo-kioslaves”, I think this is what provides that functionality (i contains the “timeline:/” KIO slave at least).
But adding your home directory to the list of excluded directories in the “Desktop Search” settings will disable baloo-file completely as well (it recognizes that it doesn’t have anything to index and shuts itself down completely), including that History display.
But uninstalling works as well of course. And if you don’t want/need desktop search anyway, this is a sensible thing to do IMHO.
