On the XFCE4 panel, there is a applet called 'Places'. Clicking on it shows a list of drives and folders and recent documents viewed. If I right click on the applet, I can select properties and untick 'Show recent documents' however, when I restart my machine, the recent documents are back.
I am assuming this is a bug and my work around would be to change the permissions of the text file that contains the list of recent documents I have viewed. My only problem is I don't know what this file is called... can someone help me out?
