It also supports different icons themes such as Numix, Vibrancy Colors & Vivacious Colors, you can also test this tool with other icon sets.
Folder color works with these file managers: Nautilus, Nemo, and Caja. For each file manager there is a different package, if you use two of them or all these file manager then you can install all 'Folder Color' packages.
