Folder emblems is a hack to add sort of an "emblem" feature to the folders in KDE4.

It allows you to select an icon, and add it to the normal icon folder of the selected folder. New folder icons are generated and assigned to the directory.

It works through the use of a KDE Service menu (right click on the directory, then choose "Actions", then "Add emblem".

To install, copy the .desktop file to the kde4 service menus directory (e.g. /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/emblem.desktop) and copy to your bin directory (e.g. /home/user/bin/

To configure the parameters, please edit directly In particular, you should edit BASE_FOLDER_ICON to point to the default folder icon you are using.

You can also change the location of, but you'll have to modify the emblem.desktop file to point to the right place.

Note: the generated folder icons are stored in ~/.config/jcc/emblems/
