Re: Zeitgeist & LightDM & Privacy
I understand why you feel this way (in case someone else uses your computer and gets presented with this material they weren't expecting in their search results). However... other people should not be using your account. They should be using the Guest account, or have an account created for them. Zeitgeist search results are account-specific, so they don't show things done in other people's user accounts.

Personally, with Zeitgeist, I'd like it to log files that I've opened via dragging and dropping them onto program windows or Launcher icons. Currently it doesn't. It's annoying - you do a search and get no results - "I'm sure that's what the file is called, and I'm sure I opened it earlier.". It's because you didn't actually double-click it in Nautilus, that it hasn't been logged.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
