In an older version of Kubuntu with KDE 4 it was at ~/.kde/share/apps/RecentDocuments

There's nothing at that location in Kubuntu 15.10 with KDE 5, but recent documents are still tracked.


I took a guess that the new directory might have the same name. I made sure my mlocate database was up to date, then searched for it.

$ sudo updatedb
$ locate RecentDocuments

I only had a few hits, and it revealed the location in Plasma 5.


I double checked, and the contents matched the recent documents in Application Launcher.
