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.
#!/usr/bin/python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- import sys from PyQt4 import QtGui from PyKDE4 import kdeui app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv) picker = kdeui.KColorDialog(); picker.show(); sys.exit(app.exec_());

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