Clear history upon logout?

Asked by ALinuxUser

It would be nice were the program to have an option - even enabled by default, I suggest - to clear the clipboard entries on logout (or perhaps the exist of Diodon). Failing that, is there a file I can delete to achieve this? Thanks.

It is possible to set the environment variable:


so Zeitgeist doesn't story anything on the filesystem.

This depends on your desktop environment where you need to set it.

Most likely will the following line work:
echo "ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_PATH=:memory:" >> ~/.pam_environment

Thanks - though I would rather have finder-grain control than this. For, I would like to keep file history for a day but clear all clipboard contents at logout or after a few hours.

It seems I can submit this comment only by clicking an icon containing the text, 'This solved my problem' - even though it has only partially solved my problem.
