Hi Tummala! :) Please, try these commands in a Terminal:

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

Let me know if it worked :) Thanks in advance!

Well as I have mentioned you I want to install it in debain not ubuntu :)

it's throwing me an error saying that

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/costales/folder-color/ubuntu/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found

Hope this is not mine only issue :)

You can edit your source.list appending these lines:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/costales/folder-color/ubuntu vivid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/costales/folder-color/ubuntu vivid main
Then:
sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install folder-color

or you can install the installers:

https://launchpad.net/~costales/+archive/ubuntu/folder-color/+files/folder-color-common_0.0.78_all.deb

https://launchpad.net/~costales/+archive/ubuntu/folder-color/+files/folder-color_0.0.63_all.deb

Then, in a Terminal,
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Did it work for you? :)

Well none of them work for me :( thanks for help me any ways

I think you need to package it specifically for debian

I have used the same in ubuntu and I worked like a charm :)

costales (costales) said : #6

Well :) Let's do a few debug :)

Did you install, didn't it?

Run nautilus from a Terminal:
nautilus -q ; sleep 2 ; nautilus

And please, send me the dump :)

(nautilus:16339): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to register client: GDBus.Error:org.gnome.SessionManager.AlreadyRegistered: Unable to register client

is the output I get

Only that? :O
Could you try right click on a folder? I think more log will appear.
Thanks!
