Ubuntu gedit recent files dconf
- Note, It seems certain programs depending on which Ubuntu release take either/or gconf / dconf, check with read first as to which one has something set and alter that one.
check correct key and value type (in this case uint32
$ dconf read /org/gnome/gedit/preferences/ui/max-recents uint32 5
$ gsettings get org.gnome.gedit.preferences.ui max-recents uint32 5
set max recents to something like 40
$ gsettings set org.gnome.gedit.preferences.ui max-recents "uint32 40"
$ dconf write /org/gnome/gedit/preferences/ui/max-recents "uint32 40"
under org > gnome > gedit > preferences > ui
