[Privacy] Disable saving of recent files completely


After 1 or 2 month of using xfce, i discovered that even if you set all app to not save there "recent open file" list, a file with all opened file keep being created into "~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel"

If you're concerned about privacy, here how disable this file being filled :
Open a command prompt
Type> rm ~/local/share/recently-used.xbel
Type> touch ~/local/share/recently-used.xbel
Type> sudo chattr +i ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel

I use linux/debian in general because i'm really concerned about privacy, but when i see this type of thing, that's care me...

I will be more attentive in the future !

See ya
