Use the color picker to select a color on the screen. The color value (HEX or RGB) will be copied to the clipboard.

Click on the applet, then click on a pixel, its color will be automatically copied to the clipboard.

Required Packages:

sudo apt-get install xsel python-xlib python-numpy

Excellent applet! I would only make the icon a bit smaller to better fit its appearance into the panel.

For those using Cinnamon but not Mint or a .deb based OS

pacman -S python2-xlib python2-numpy

Using Pip installer with python3.x as the default and python2.x installed
$ sudo python2 -m pip install python-xlib
$ sudo python2 -m pip install numpy

It's a very nice and useful applet. Working like a charm. I just have one suggestion: Please, add an option to copy hex code without "#" symbol.

Works fine on Mint 18.2 X64. Very handy tool :)

It's not working properly on Mint 18.2 (Cinnamon - 32bit). It don't save the clolor codes. Indeed, using CopyQ, after pick a color you cannot find the color code in history.

I tried to improve it a bit. The description was missing a required package: ┬╗python-numpy┬ź

During color picking the cursor changes now to a crosshair and a notification with the selected color pops up.

Thank you for reply. Now it works fine. Yes, I guess I missed the python-numpy package at the very first install.
