Fedora 25 - Color Pickers not working anymore

asked 2016-12-20 18:07:17 -0500

Since updating to Fedora 25, both gcolor 2 and gpick stopped working. The utility launches, but there is no way to pick a color. Nothing happens when I do it.

As a web developper, I use them a lot. Any work around is most welcome

This is a problem with security features in Wayland -- applications are isolated and it isn't possible to access graphical 'stacks' of other applications. And this applies to color pickers too, these tools just can't 'see' what is inside other windows.

Workaround is simple, just switch back to Xorg -- on login screen choose "GNOME on Xorg" --

Wayland is causing me a lot of issues :) Thank you for that. I'll try
