Different folder colors in Ubuntu

If you need a tagging kind of system to track folders, you can change color of the folder. I love it.

A small extension in Nautilus can do this job. To install this extension, open terminal / terminator and execute following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/folder-color

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install folder-color

Once installed, restart machine or Nautilus.

nautilus -q

Once done, right click on any folder. You’ll see Folder Color option where you can change folder color to any of your choice and reset it too.
