Recent Document History

Hello Experts,

Is there a way to clear the "Recent Document" History list in Linux Red Hat 9.0?  Like in Windows there is a "Clear List" command button on the "Customize Start Menu" dialog when right-clicking the Task Bar and select Properties.

Thanks,

jk

GNOME 2.7 :

 go to "Actions/Recent Documents", there's this little
things at the bottom.

"Clear Recent Documents"

------------

Earlier version
use this script

#!/bin/sh
#  Clears the recently used files for GNOME
cat > $HOME/.recently-used <<EOF
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<RecentFiles>
</RecentFiles>

Appreciate your comments, but could you give more details on where I can get to this GNOME stuff.  Is it under System Tools or Accessories or Preferences???

Sorry, I'm a newbie in Linux and I'm not quite familiar with it.  I've tried to locate the GNOME program shortcut, but could find it.

Thanks.

I think mine is version 2.0.  So, that's probably why I don't have that "Clear Recent Document" option availabe on my Linux.  But in your script, how do I execute it?  Can I just copy it and paste it into the Terminal or into a file and then save that file as a Linux script.  How would I do it?

Could you pls give a little instruction on how to accomplish this?

Many thanks,

jk
