I use Kubuntu 16.04 LTS. After opening a document during my KDE session a link appears immediately under ~/.local/share/RecentDocuments but nothing appears under the "Recent documents" entry of the Plasma widgets "Applications menu" and Kickoff. Plasma needs a restart to show the new entry. Is this a feature? Is there a way to for Plasma to show immediately new recent documents (without restarting Plasma)?

  • I just noticed that ~/.local/share/RecentDocuments does not cover all the recent documents shown by Plasma. There must be another place where Plasma stores recent documents but I am not able to find it. – Stéphane Tréboux Aug 7 '16 at 14:18

Perhaps because there is also a .kde/share/apps/RecentDocuments. You can try symlinking them as described here:

 ln -sf ~/.local/share/RecentDocuments ~/.kde/share/apps/RecentDocuments
