kbuildsycoca4 didn't solve, I tried in suse 11.3 and kde 4.6.2, install.sh doesn't create the ServiceMenus folder, so I made it by hand and copied colorfolder.desktop there, colorfolder was already copied in usr/bin by install.sh and now it works, thanks :-)
tomorrow I'll try in suse 11.4

I am new to Linux and have been spending hours trying to figure out how to install your program.
When I am in terminal I get:
nicholas@nicholas-laptop:~$
What do I do next ?

It would be great idea for files too (but harder to implement probably).
For instance: you have 20 pdf files... with similar names - some of them (more important to you) colorize in specific color (option in right-click menu). The final view of icon would be the like old one, except different opacity color.

I'm using the krystal-blue mod for the crystal icon set. Does the crystal optomized version work on that?

try it out, if it doesn't work, delete the files you copied to your system and everything will be as it was before.

But I think it would be better to rename the menu entry "delete .directory file" to something like "reset to defaults". I think that not everyone knows about the .directory file and what it's supposed to do :-)

However, deleting that file is what it does - it doesn't reset the folder colour information to default, which is what a message like that would mean when in the context it exists in :) Those files are used for other things than just sticking icons on the directories ;)

An optimized version for nuoveXT would be: instead of folder_violet folder_pink and instead of folder_grey folder_gray and no folder_yellow :)

What is the difference between the nuvola- and the crystal-optimized version?

Report

some icons do not exist in the different icons sets and the optimized version hasn't got entries in the context menu to access these icons.

Report

janet

I see, thanks. In that case: I would prefer if the entry for the blue folder (I only looked at crystal) would point to the icon folder_blue not folder, because there are people out there using another color for the main folder or other icon themes where the main folder is not blue - and because "remove color" also points to "folder".

i'm using suse 10.1, kde 3.5 and folder_blue does not exist in the crystal icon set. so i removed the blue 'color' because it doesn't make much sense. thanks for this hint.

well, despite the comments that the instructions are wrong, they work for me!

This is a great service menu addition. Now I can organise my folders like on Mac! Well done.
