Color Label Folder or Document Icons

Postby mr.peeters on Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:29 am

hi,

I recently installed mint nadia cinnamon and my life would be a little bit easier if i found a way to color label my folders: being able to choose whether you want to label a folder or a document red or blue or green (via right-mouse click for example) - much the same as what you can do with mails in Evolution for example... mac has this for a long time, don't know about windows - but does anyone know of an app or a way to do this to mint. Would be a fairly simple but great addition to mint!

thanks for any replies!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yups it's not bad - still I'd prefer to be able to colour label with nautilus nemo - cinnamon's default file manager or file browser, from what I gather.
However I can't find anything on the net about this option. Can't imagine though, that I'm the only cinnamon user that would like to colour label files and folders...
Any help still welcome!
Thx.
