GTK+ Recent Files Scrubber is a compact, lightweight Python script which uses GTK's RecentManager to watch for updates to all globally-available "Recently Used" lists (the ones which appear in Open dialogs and the like) and filter out anything in the folders you blacklist. Blacklist entries are hashed to make reading the blacklist not worth the effort.

BleachBit deletes junk to recover disk space and maintain privacy. It rids your system of old junk including cache, Internet history, temporary files, unused locale files (better than localepurge), logs, and cookies. Designed for Linux systems, it wipes clean 50 applications including Adobe Reader, Bash, Firefox, Flash, OpenOffice.org, Opera, Real Player, Skype, and more. It shreds files so that they cannot be recovered, and it wipes free disk space to hide insecurely deleted files. It offers both a simple PyGTK GUI and a command line interface for automation.
