Ubuntu 12.10, gedit 3.6.1
This won't work:
gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/gedit- /preferences/ui/recents/max_recents 30
Modifying this file as root won't work either:
cat /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.gedit.gschema.xml |grep rece -C 1
EDIT: there is nothing at
Is it hard coded? In order to increase the number of recent files in gedit from its default of 5 will I need to find, "fix" and recompile gedit with the answer here?
