0.0.85 version doesn't work properly on Ubuntu 16.04

Asked by van hanegen on 2017-10-18

Hi,
instead of changing the colour of the folder icon, the icon is change itself into another type. Does this version bugged, or something wrong with my install - ubuntu 16.04 64, nautilus 3.14.3, unity. Should I make a bug report (in that case, please tell me how)
P.S. I have two other installs: 14.04 and 17.04 and 0.0.79 version works just fine on both - may be i should install it instead of (probably broken) 0.0.85?
best wishes

I managed to solve it with Synaptic by installing 0.0.79 version (0.0.85 one is still there for no good reason), then hold it with sudo apt-mark hold folder-color & sudo apt-mark hold folder-color-common. Works rather well.
Thanks alot for this app, sir!

Hi Van,

I think is your theme. Could you try with another theme?

Best regards,

Hi,
It's all about themes! For some reasons 0.0.85 version doesn't work well with Ubuntu-mono-dark (and with some others: Humanity, Suru, Unity-icon ...) So, i 'll stay with 0.0.79 - works really fine with my default Ubuntu-mono-dark theme.

best wishes

It should work with those themes :O
I'll review that.
Thanks for your feedback.
