Today I spend my day partly playing with the GIMP. This days I have the enthusiasm,to start learning this nice linux design software.
I have to solve a task where I wanted to change the background of a picture with an existing color
in the header of a website.
Therefore I needed some kind of color picker which is able to pick up
colors directly from any running application on the screen. Luckily I found the solution quickly,
with the help by a guy in #debian in I was suggested to look for color picker via
$ apt-cache search color picker . The first thing that popped up was exactly what I was looking for. It’scalled GCOLOR2. Hope this post will help to somebody out there looking for a color picker for Linux, FreeBSD.
