Opened files and directories not appearing in activity journal

Asked by David Wilkins on 2010-12-13

GAJ is not reporting files and directories I open, only applications. The exception is my home directory, which appears as "Home Folder". This applies to files and directories opened from within Nautilus as well as from the command line.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with the following packages:

gnome-activity-journal 0.5.0.1-0ubuntu1
zeitgeist 0.5.2-0ubuntu1
synapse 0.2.1~bzr268~maverick1

It may also be relevant that my home directory is encrypted with ecryptfs.

Thanks!

Found the problem - converting to a question so others with the same problem can get the solution.

Problem was that GNOME "Recent Documents" list was disabled. When I reenabled it (using Ubuntu Tweak, "Gnome Settings" > "Enable system-wide Recent Documents list") Zeitgeist immediately began logging opened files and folders.
