Ubuntu MATE & Folder Color

Now you can use Folder Color in Ubuntu MATE 14.10 too!

Caja & Folder Color
Just run these commands into a Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/folder-color
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-caja gir1.2-caja caja libgtk2.0-bin folder-color-caja

If your Ubuntu is 32bits:
sudo cp /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/girepository-1.0/Caja-2.0.typelib /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/

If your Ubuntu is 64bits:
sudo cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/girepository-1.0/Caja-2.0.typelib /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/

Finally, restart your file browser:
caja -q

PS: If you're using the Nemo file browser (Usually with Cinnamon) see how to install here.

    1. Yes, of course. Just follow the instructions here for Nautilus (Ubuntu Unity & Ubuntu GNOME), Nemo (Linux Mint) or Caja (Ubuntu MATE):

      For Ubuntu 14.04 just run these commands:
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/folder-color
      sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install folder-color
      nautilus -q

      Best regards!
