Color Picker issue on linux KDE Plasma

#1

Post by ITdreamer » Tue Jan 15, 2019 7:25 am

Hi,

I am using Debian 9, and KDE Plasma on my working desktop.

When I click on "Pick ..." button in nodes where we can pick colors to select the color from an image, the floating window appears and the whole screen behind this window becomes darker. Then I click on "Pick Screen Color" button, but the screen where I want to pick a color is darker (it is inactive), so the color I am picking is darker than I need.

Is there a way to dissable the appearence of this floating window, or to dissable the darkening of the background (inactive) ui?

I've attached the screenshot with my problem

You click the "pick" button, hold the mouse button and move the cursor to the point you want to pick
