Description sworddragon2 2011-06-18 23:12:06 UTC
Every time if I open an already existing document with writer the file ~/.recently-used is created as a history. I tried to disable the creation of this file but I haven't found any information how to do this. So it seems there isn't a way to do this (the problem existed already in OpenOffice).
Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2011-06-19 00:10:00 UTC
Not sure if it is a bug nor if it is on the LibreOffice side.
Changed to enhancement.

I can't test this because LibreOffice 3.5.0 Beta 2 doesn't start as non-root. I doesn't even find the path there the configuration files of this version are stored. I will test this and all other of my tickets if there is an official release in the Ubuntu repository.
Comment 4 sworddragon2 2012-01-14 01:44:26 UTC
LibreOffice 3.5.0 Beta 2 is in the Ubuntu repository so I could test this now. But ~/.recently-used is still created in this version and it seems there is no option to disable this.

This could be implemented as part of Recently Used Files list enhancement in bug 61174, point 1 (?).
Comment 6 Gabor Kelemen (allotropia) 2019-04-08 15:13:55 UTC
Support for creating that file was dropped recently in bug #122114 


I guess this is worth now a wontfix.
