Folder Color for Nautilus to Better Organize Folders

As the name indicates, Folder Color lets you better organize your folders by assigning colors. App provides a rather simple functionality, but have been proving quite useful to me.

Add some color to your Folders!

The simplest of apps can have profound impact on your daily routine. Folder Color is one such application. Color code your folders so that you can easily find/differentiate the important stuff when you need it. Works great with Nautilus, Nemo and Caja File Browser (official file manager for the MATE desktop). Supports major distros such as Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, openSUSE, Arch etc. Installation and usage is pretty straight forward. Take a look:
Click here to download and install Folder Color from Ubuntu Software Center (Ubuntu 15.04 & 15.10)
OR ELSE: Those using older versions of Ubuntu (prior to Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet), please use the following PPA (copy-paste the following commands in Terminal).

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/folder-color
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install folder-color
nautilus -q

The last command will restart Nautilus and voila! Folder-Color is up and ready to go. Open your file browser and right-click on any folder. You will find Folder's Color entry with a lot of options to choose from. If the Folder's Color option does not appear immediately, restart you file-browser using nautilus -q command and then try again. Those who are using other distros and file-browsers, more download options are available. HERE
