Bug Description

When using the built-in methods for opening files (menu item, toolbar button), the newly opened file gets registered in the "Recently opened" list (upon closing the program).

However, when opening a PDF file from outside the program (Nautilus, command line...), the file doesn't get registered in the list.

I couldn't find anything in the help and in the qpdfview.conf file that would make me think this is a configurable option.

Thanks for reporting. This is indeed not configurable was just forgotten.

However, this will probably be "fixed" in a different way as the "Recently used" menu is removed in the next version (0.3.2) and is replaced by a bookmarking functionality for files and pages. I am uncomfortable with the current implementation since there is no way to disable it whereas storing bookmarks on disk must be disabled/enabled in the settings, hence the switch to explicitly bookmark files. (Of course, there will still be the recently used functionality in the GTK file dialog which is probably where it belongs anyway.)

Ok, trunk has a recently used menu that is disabled by default but can be enabled in the settings and should track the last ten of all opened files. Please test extensively as it touches quite a lot of places in the code.
