Folder colour problem in Nemo [WORKAROUND]

Post by Summerof69 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 10:17 am

Hello I'm a bit confused regarding the feature that allows the user to change the folder colours individually in Nemo.

The problem is occurring on mint-Y and some of the ubuntu folder styles - mint-X works ok.

This is what happens:

I can change the colour of the folders in my home folder individually - except the Video folder, when using the Mint-Y folder theme. Mint-X works OK!

Sometimes when switching between the different Mint-Y Icon colours, the possibility to switch the folder colours individually disappears.(Rightclicking on a folder and choosing a custom colour). Only way to get the feature back is to switch momentarily to a random Mint-X Icon colour (system wide) and then back to Mint-Y Icon colours.(Also system wide)
This goes for all the Mint-Y Icon themes once the feature disappears.

If I switch to Mint-X Icon theme then I'm able to change the Video folder colour, but when I switch back to mint-Y there is a "theme conflict"; the folders in home that are themed with small icons are Mint-Y except for the Video folder that is showing the Mint-X theme.(Maybe this is because the colour I selected is Mint-X and not Mint-Y, so that the Icon theme sticks to the colour and folder?)

But no matter what I do I can't change the Mint-Y Icon theme colour individually for the Video folder, that is empty by the way.

I know that sometimes you have to enter a folder and go back out in order to make that folder change colour, this doesn't work on the "Video" folder either.

I have tried all sort of combinations of the theme settings, and resetting Cinnamon (ctrl+alt+escape) and restarting the system, but the problem remains.

I'm able to reset the video folder to system default according to the choice I've made in the Themes/Icons.

I'm using Linux Mint 19 64bit Cinnamon edition.

Result of sudo lshw:

Re: Folder colour problem in Nemo

Post by Summerof69 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 10:33 am

Additional info:
I've just turned the pc off, left it without current for one minute - and turned it back on, and
I'm no longer able to alter the colours for the individually folders in Nemo - but on the desktop I'm able to do it...
This is still Mint-Y Icon theme.
Got the feature back by changing to the Mint-X Icon theme and then back to Mint-Y Icon theme...

Re: Folder colour problem in Nemo

Unfortunately this plug-in is a bit buggy in general and Mint-Y has got a bug in that the name of the icon for the video folder is not named as the plugin expects. The plug-in is expecting the name folder-video Mint-Y only has folder-videos

The workaround is to ignore the color switcher feature entirely (i'd recommend disabling it in plug-ins entirely - it's been implicated in causing poor nemo performance) and use another method.

Right click on the folder in question, select properties, click on the icon in the top left of the dialog and then navigate to /usr/share/icons/Mint-Y-<color>/Places/128@2x <color> being the colour you want and pick your folder-videos icon.

If you are doing lots of icons by this method you'll probably want to bookmark /usr/share/icons

To revert any particular icon you right click on the folder in question, select properties, click on the icon in the top left of the dialog, and then select revert.

Hello smurphos, thank you for your reply.

Well that makes sense especially regarding the video folder, for which I have scratched my head for at least 2 hours doing all sorts of renaming stunts.

I have done exactly as you explained and it is a nice workaround, I think. Thank you. :D

One odd thing though; after selecting another colour for a folder, I found out that if I resized the icons, with the slider at the lower right corner of Nemo, then the size "one step to the right of the middle selection" would appear slightly smaller than the default icons.
But only that size, once I move the slider to either side, then the folder size is as the default icons.

Oh and another thing about the folder-color plugin is that if I select another colour for a folder and then increase the size of the icon, then the custom folder appears as lower resolution than the default icons...
