[Solved]Nemo - folder colouring

Post by axisofevil » Wed Jan 23, 2019 11:40 am

In nemo using Cinnamon, I used to be able to choose different colours for folders.
I suspect that following the recent upgrade to Cinnamon 4.0.9 that I have lost this ability.

Folders retain their old customisations, but new ones are not possible.
Just discovered if I arrange to open the parent folder as root (using the nemo feature), then the option to change the colour of the original folder reappears.
However, it has no effect when I try to select a colour.

I think it might be related to icon themes.
I changed from Mint-X-Dark to Mint-X and it appears to be working again.

Very weird.
So Solved?
