    Do you want to totally remove eog and totem from Gnome3?

    If you do then you can remove them with Synaptic package manager or via command line,

    apt-get remove eog totem

    I hope thats what you were asking for.

    Hello there.
    I'm not overly familiar with Gnome 3, but there should be an option in your menus to Clear Recent Documents.
    Alternately, you could look for the hidden directory in your /home folder, and remove them there.
    .

    ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel

    Ah ok, you can do this too by installing bleachbit which is the equivalent to ccleaner in the windows world. It will clear recently used documents and far more so it may be worth adding to your computer.

    To remove the history, you effectively need to remove the file you mentioned. Don't forget to restart you X window, with the command ALT-F2 + r + ENTER.

    Don't forget that this deletes the recent files access, but not the command line history. For that you would need to remove the ~/.history file.

    Cheers
