Re: [Thunar] How to disable recent visited ?

Out of curiosity, how would it case "privacy leaks"? Its basically a method for tracking opened files within the context of a user environment. It doesn't leak information out like other tracking services might.

Regardless, the file that stores the information is located at ~/local/share/recently-used.xbel. With GTK apps, you can disable the tracking of recently used files by adding:

[Settings]
gtk-recent-files-enabled=0

...to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini. Note: this will only impact GTK apps.

Also, with thunar, you can right-click on "Places", select "Places" and uncheck "Recent" to hide the display of that entry.

Thunar, right-click on "Places", "Places" uncheck "Recent" is good for me.

Unchecking "Recent" in Thunar does not stop the logging of opened files by Thunar (and others), it is just
not displayed in Thunar's side panel. However, assigning the "immutable" attribute to the recently-used.xbel
file will stop it cold. Thunar will then complain endlessly in the x-session-errors file about not being able to
write or change permissions on recently-used.xbel.
