    A simple Avidemux question


    In the Avidemux menubar is Files I click on that under that is Recent Files. This has a list of the videos I just converted. How do I clear out recent files?

    Convert a Couple More should do the Trick
    (No Offense, But why do you want to hide that? The only Reason that I can think of is that you use a Comunity Computer and that you did convert something Adult? And you are a Minor?, but again.. No, Offense..)

    Or you can try to run ls -al in your home folder and look for the name of the Program and play with the files.

    Cheers,
    Robin

    Robin,
    No offense taken,it's just that I personally like to keep my dropdown menus clean. It's a personal idiosyncrasy
    Anyway, I found out that the way to this is thusly:
    1.) set your Personal Files to show hidden files
    2.) go to /home/yourusername/.avidemux ( that is "dot" avidemux it is a hidden file) rightclick to open
    3.)open the config file with with your favorite editor
    4.)find <lastfiles> & delete everything in between so that it will look like this:
    <lastfiles>

    <lastfiles>
    P.S. I'm over 18!

    Ah, so did my ls -al help?

    And, well my Brother asked me the very same Question about 3 years ago. (Yet with another program) and that was when he turned 13

    Anyhow, if you use that program Rather often you might want to add this in the .bashrc script of your user.
    mv /home/$USER/.avidemux/cleanconfig /home/$USER/.avidemux/config

    No unfotunately ls -al didnt help. The info I got was from a guy whose job is in multimedia & he uses Avidemux a lot he says.
    The CLI that you wrote about though sounds interesting I'll try that.
    Lastly it's fair to say I'm an old fart
