Re: GtkRecentManager

Hi Emmanuele,

Okay, I examined the file. It is basically empty. It has header info, but no links to recently used files. In any of my applications. And by the way, Anjuta does not display any recently used files in its recently used file menu. What is going on.

nothing has changed in GtkRecentManager for quite a while — except
maybe the location of the file, which is in
$HOME/.local/share/recently-used.xbel (as per specification) instead
of $HOME/.recently-used.xbel. the file is automatically migrated by
gtk 2.x from the location in $HOME to $HOME/.local/share; gtk 3.x
already assumes the file is in its specified location. that's pretty
much the only change in GtkRecentManager since the 2.x days.

But, something has come up with GtkRecentManager.  It isn't working properly
and I can't find the bug- in my code or gtk3.  Is this a known issue?  It
clears the file items it is supposed to remember. Another application that
edits lilypond files, built with Qt is actually setting recent files.  I
start up my app, the recent files are in my recent files menu (because of
the other application), then I edit, save, the files and quit, then start up
my app again and the recent files are gone.

My app never did this until Ubuntu 13.10.

I have no depreciations in my build, so my old gtk2 code seems okay.
