I found this color picker package, gpick, reviewed in a random blog. It uses GTK+ so I think I can use it on Fedora. Unfortunately there is not yum package in the normal repositories. There is an OpenSUSE repository that reports to have the package, but I've never used OpenSUSE distro packages on my Fedora distro. Not sure what to make of it.

What do I need to know before I try to install this from the maintainer's source or from the OpenSUSE repository?

Although built by openSUSE build service, the packages are designated for Fedora, so you should be fine. –  Chad Feller Aug 21 '11 at 0:28

In general, the package conversion is not going to be the easiest or most practical way to do it. Instead, you should set up the software from source. This website has some instructions for general linux installs from source.
