This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Hi, your question was asked earlier here on Askubuntu. Please check this Privacy: Record Activity ON? question. Apparently, you need a tool like gnome-activity-journal just as @Sylvain Pineau pointed out and it is not recommended to view these SQLite database files manually as there are high chances that we might accidentally modify it. – Nitin Venkatesh Sep 1 '14 at 13:58

You can browse the recorded data using the gnome-activity-journal tool.

sudo apt-get install gnome-activity-journal

enter image description here

From the command line, AFAIK there's no friendly tool to extract such data, but you can use the API, see this post on SO.

  • Ohk and thanks dear @Sylvain Pineau but here I don't want to install any additional softwares or tools,Is it possible ? – Gopal00005 Sep 1 '14 at 13:37
  • If you have sqlite3 already installed, you could use the method described is this answer – Sylvain Pineau Sep 1 '14 at 13:54
