Cannot choose the folder color / badge via the context menu while on the desktop in Ubuntu Budgie 19.04

Asked by Adrian Kepa

I'm running Ubuntu Budgie 19.04 via a USB drive and I'm using Nemo. I can freely change the folder colour as well as badges while inside of Nemo and browsing folders. However when I open the context menu on a folder sitting directly on the desktop I cannot change it's colour or badges, the menu is not there at all. I remember it wasn't the case in 18.04. I hope it's not a known problem - if yes, I'm sorry but I couldn't find anything about this.

Hi Adrian,
If it's working with any folder in Nemo and not in the desktop, then is a Budgie issue.
It could be that Nemo is not managing your desktop, but it's your default file browser as app.
Could you ask here? they are giving awesome answers every time.
Best regards.

Can you help with this problem?
