    Thanks for the wonderful post. This is what I was looking for.
    I’m using Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon. I cannot find the ‘Control Center‘ under Start Menu. In System Settings, under Appearance, there is no ‘Customize‘ option.

    I’m using Numix Circle Icon theme and I want to change the Folder color. I believe customizing it like you have said is the solution.

    Any suggestion or trick is welcome.

      I’m using Linux Mint MATE for this article.
      For Linux Mint Cinnamon just go under Preferences –> Theme. Then click Icon, this will change the folder color.

      Hope this helps

    When you write “Papiurs” do you mean “Papirus”?

    Interesting alternatives but their Firefox icon is outshone by the original
