KDE 4 find files/folders

KDE 4 find files/folders

For some reason, every time I press Ctrl+F in Dolphin or Konqueror, the "Find Files/Folders" dialog remembers "ruby1.9", which I entered in the filename field a long time back. Clearing it or using something else doesn't change what the default value in the dialog, either. And it's a pain because I have to remember to clear it manually if I search from one of the other tabs, as I generally do.

"open the file

~/.kde/share/config/kfindrc

There will be a line as follows:

Patterns[$e]=leather,pineapples,hello,*

delete some or all of the entries after the equals sign to get rid of them from the search history.
