KolorTool For KDE 4

July 17, 2009

Update (2009-07-25)
Turns out what I needed was KColorChooser in KDE4. Oh well :-)

Maybe I’m blind, but I can’t find a nice, simple color tool on KDE 4 for my life. The color picker Plasmoid is okay, but it doesn’t do what I want: to mangle colors and get the resulting hex values.

To fix this, I threw together this little Python bit and installed it as KolorTool. Does what I need, just throws up a color dialog for me to play with.

Pretty simple...

KolorTool

KolorTool.desktop

Enjoy, modify and let me know if there is an existing, standard tool like this please!

    Excellent! This little code does exactly what I was looking for.

    Also, whoever installs it should not forget to change the .desktop to match the correct directory, on the entry: Exec=~/System/bin/KolorTool

    Thanks and a great 2014!

    And yes, I missed the KColorChooser on Muon.

    I was searching for KColorPicker instead, silly me :-)

    Thanks anyway!

    … and not forget to mark KolorTool file as executable.

    Thank you for your great work!
