I saw this post: Prevent gnome-shell's dash from listing Recent Items and I'm not able to remove the recently.used.xbel file.
Do I need to be root to do this?

When I run
rm: cannot remove `/home/ryan/.local/share/recently-used.xbel': Operation not permitted
Running the same command with
sudo returns the same error, and running nautilus as root also returns a similar error.
