How to Install
If you use elementary OS, you can get it directly from the AppCenter.
Our main target is elementary, but Desktop Folder should also work on Ubuntu and GNOME 3. You should use the latest .deb release. To install the .deb with apt:
sudo apt install ./com.github.spheras.desktopfolder_[version]_amd64.deb
Open it like any other app after installing. Desktop Folder will launch automatically when you next log in.
Current Status on Wayland Support
Wayland (in Ubuntu since 17.10) is not fully supported yet, and we've experienced problems with adding support for it. We are working hard to fix this. You're welcome to try Desktop Folder and help us find or fix issues.
See the Contributing page on the wiki.
