  • 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.

Via terminal

check correct key and value type (in this case uint32

$ dconf read /org/gnome/gedit/preferences/ui/max-recents
uint32 5

or

$ 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"

or

$ dconf write /org/gnome/gedit/preferences/ui/max-recents "uint32 40"

Via GUI

use

dconf-editor

under org > gnome > gedit > preferences > ui
