I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and have a hidden folder. Using the privacy app in the system settings I have excluded this folder from the dash this works well enough although I would prefer to be able to exclude all hidden files/folders from the dash rather than excluding based on specific folders.
The problem though is that files in this hidden folder still show up in Nautilus' recent files. I don't really want to disable that feature altogether but can I prevent it showing hidden files only? (I would have assumed that should be default behaviour?)
