http://ubuntuguide.net – First of all, open up a terminal window for commands: 1.) To clear recent documents, use: rm ~/.local/share/zeitgeist/activity.sqlite zeitgeist-daemon --replace 2.) To prevent new items from being created, use: echo -n > ~/.recently-used.xbel sudo chattr +i .recently-used.xbel If you change your mind, use this to restore: sudo chattr -i .recently-used.xbel Thanks to multifo from ubuntuforums.org.
