    I think that Numix is a gtk theme and not an icon theme. To change the folder color, you'd have to edit the corresponding icon in your icon theme.

    Numix now has three icon themes and the location is usr/share/icons/numix/places. The icon color could be edited using gimp and you would have to change the places/folder content for each icon size included with the set . You might want to download another set just to experiment with. From what I see in the folder the icon set only offers one folder color with no way to change that from the theme index

    The Numix I mean is the one that came with Xubuntu 13.10. AFAICT, Numix isn't installed by default on Ubuntu 13.10.
    Code:
    $ apt-cache search numix
    shimmer-themes - Gtk+ themes from Shimmer Project
    $
    and
    Code:
    $ ls /usr/share/themes/Numix
    gtk-2.0  gtk-3.0  metacity-1  openbox-3  unity  xfwm4
    $
    and there's no Numix under /usr/share/icons.

    @OP, if you install something from somewhere else, please provide a link to the source.

    Confused , I have the Numix icon theme installed and that is what I thought to OP was referring to the folder color for Numix icons . They are part of the project at the link and 3rd party. https://launchpad.net/~numix/+archiv...series_filter=

    Not to worry, I'm sure OP will come back and explain which Numix is the subject of the thread
