I ran these commands...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/folder-color
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install folder-color
nautilus -q

...to get folder color to work. When I ran nautilus -q my desktop acted weird for a minute, and now seems to be working fine. Can anyone tell me what the command nautilus -q means/did?

I found these commands from here How to change folders color?

  • @ShawnMoore run nautilus -h on the command line – wjandrea Jun 14 '17 at 23:40
  • @wjandrea what will that do? what does this command mean? – Shawn Moore Jun 14 '17 at 23:41
  • @ShawnMoore Ironically, you can run it to find out. But seriously, -h or --help gets the help page for nautilus, as with most commands (also e.g. apt -h). – wjandrea Jun 14 '17 at 23:44

nautilus -qsimply quits nautilus
