Gcolor3 - nice color picker for Linux Mint

Gcolor3 is a color selection dialog written in GTK3. It is much alike Gcolor2, but uses the newer GTK version to integrate better in your modern desktop. It has the same feature set as Gcolor2 and even uses the same file to save colors for compatibility reasons.

Gcolor3 is a simple color selector that was originally based on gcolor2, ported to use GTK3.

Installation Gcolor3 into Linux Mint:

for x32

cd /tmp; wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/3zyy25freu8ovz9/gcolor3_1.2.1ubuntu1_i386.deb; sudo dpkg -i gcolor3_1.2.1ubuntu1_i386.deb

for x64

cd /tmp; wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/ojc1uttm9rgfk76/gcolor3_1.2.1ubuntu1_amd64.deb; sudo dpkg -i gcolor3_1.2.1ubuntu1_amd64.deb

On my Linux Mint Mate it worked perfectly. On a virtual machine in Linux Mint Cinnamon color was not going. Can't say why.
Gcolor2 also worked without problems on mate, but the cinnamon color is not collected.
If you want you can install Gcolor2:

sudo apt-get install gcolor2

Good Luck!!!

I would like to click on the icon and immediately be able to pick a color from my desktop, which gets saved immediately.

Now I have to start the program (1), click on the color picker (2), pick the color from the desktop (3) and manually copy it from the color code input (4). I would like to skip step 2 and 4.

I used a color picker that worked like that before, but I can't paste the color code I got from that program in PhpStorm because it uses xsel, which PhpStorm apparently does not support, so I searched for a new color picker that does work.

Nice improvement & keep up the good work. Would it be possible to add this app to the standard repository?
