How does one permanently turn off any and all system "recording" of used apps, directories, or files in Ubuntu 12.10?
I specifically DO NOT want a list of my recently used files showing up in my menu for anyone who may be looking over my shoulder to see. I have tried turning off everything in the "privacy app", and I have also told the app NOT to record activity from specific directories, files, and applications and I still see that my system is recording recently used files.
Any help on how to permanently turn off the recently used file list would be very appreciated. I do not merely want to prevent the recently used files from being displayed in the menu, I also want to make sure the system is not keeping any record of recently used files, directories, or applications anywhere on the system. I would like to be able to do this from the privacy app, as that's what it implies it's supposed to do anyway, but obviously doesn't.
