Ubuntu – Nautilus tags/labels/marks/columns for folders/files


Is there any way how to mark folders or files with tags(or labels, new columns or whatever) in Nautilus? It would be nice to sort marked folders or files through this tags.

Especially my first idea was to mark folders in my Movie directory with tags seen, not seen, must see, and so on. Then I realized it would be useful in any other workspaces with any custom tags…

Is there any nautilus extension for this? Or any other file manager which can do this?

It might look like this:

nautilus custom column/tag

This can be achieved with extended attributes:

setfattr -n user.xdg.label -v "red" file.txt
