Recently Used Screenlet

Downloads:  772
Submitted:  Mar 25 2009
Updated:  Apr 9 2010


This screenlet gives you access to your Gnome recently used documents list. The user can set the number of items shown and has control over all fonts, colors and sizes. Users can also "pin" documents to the list by clicking on the pin icon (it doesn't really look like a pin) to the left of the document icon. Pinned documents will stay on the top of the list until they are unpinned.

Installing in Ubuntu from a PPA
To install this software in Ubuntu from a PPA open a terminal and run the
following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hernejj/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install recentlyusedscreenlet

Installing manually
Installing this screenlet is as easy as copying the RecentlyUsed folder to the
correct location on your computer.

If you wish to install this screenlet in the main screenlets folder so every
user on the system can use it then copy the RecentlyUsed folder to

sudo cp -r RecentlyUsed /usr/share/screenlets

If you wish to install this screenlet in your home folder so only your user can
use it then copy the RecentlyUsed folder to ~/.screenlets/

mkdir ~/.screenlets
cp -r RecentlyUsed ~/.screenlets

NOTE: You *must* have the screenlets package installed before you can use this
software. To install the screenlets package in Ubuntu use the following command:

sudo apt-get install screenlets


* 0.1
- Initial version

* 0.2
- Fixed bug that sometimes highlighted the item under the mouse cursor even if user had hover turned off.
- Added icons (with option to enable/disable)
- Small performance tweak to prevent some wasteful redraws on start up
- Using callback to update list when recent docs change instead of just updating every 5 seconds

* 0.3
- Fixed large performance problem with icon drawing by caching GDKPixBuf 's for all icons in the list

* 0.4
--- Following changes by: Risethagain aka Matjaz Pecan ---
- Fixed font handling. Fonts set by the default themes now work properly. Also, user's font size choice is now respected.
- Added option to disable corner rounding (available to themes only)
- Longer filenames are truncated according to the width set in the properties dialog (shorten_name_gracefully) (IE: 123456789.tar.gz would become 123...89.tar.gz with a maximum size of 15 set)
--- Following changes by: Jason J. Herne ---
- Removed "num_chars_per_item" option as Matjaz's changes make it obsolete :)
- Removed slow theme as recent performance fixes make it pretty much pointless
- Themes no longer modify max_docs_shown and list_width settings, now we respect the
- user's settings when they switch themes

* 0.5
- We now set the window shape properly thereby avoiding a bug where overly transparent (or undrawn) areas of the screenlet do not detect mouse movement or mouse clicks

* 0.6
--- Following changes by: Risethagain aka Matjaz Pecan ---
- Fixed the problem with filenames that have more than one period in them and are not double extensions(like .tar.gz). Example: "01 - Preston, 11.06.1994 - Shakermaker.mp3" was being converted to "01 - Preston, 11.06.1994 - Shakermaker.m...994 - Shakermaker.m...".

* 0.7
- User can now pin documents onto the list which makes them permanent items that will always show up at the top of the list in alphabetical order. To pin or unpin a document simply click on the "pin" icon to the left of the document's icon.
- Created new theme: Sky Blue
- Fixed bug causing "Properties,About" dialog to be blank. Apparently you cannot use a '&' character in the authors field ;)
--- Following changes by: Risethagain aka Matjaz Pecan ---
- Wrote custom draw_triangle function to improve the triangle control used to expand/contract the documents list

* 0.8
- Fixed bug that caused screenlet to crash if an icon could not be loaded.

* 0.9
- Fixed bug causing the hover selection NOT to appear when mouse enters from the top or bottom of screenlet.

* 1.2
- Fix ellipsizing

It fits nicely next to my "places" screenlet for a convenient desktop.
Icons would indeed be nice.
Keep it up !

I'm sorry but I do not understand the problem. Could you please try explaining it again? If there is a bug I would like to fix it for you :)

Nevermind :) I see what you mean.

If the user sets one of their colors to a very high level of transparency then for some reason the screenlet does not detect the "mouse over" and thus does not correctly draw the hover selection.

I will look into this a bit more and see if I can fix it.

This problem has been fixed as of version 0.5. :) Thanks very much for reporting it! Not only have you allowed me to fix it but I've also learned a little bit more about the Screenlets API!!

Let me know if you have any more problems.
