@DaveCode
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I have made a note and will look into it when I have time but it won't be soon due to other oblications and priorities. I'm definitely interested by the singleton apps.

I suppose you know? That old rgb.txt file on your site is 99% identical to a GIMP palette file, /usr/share/gimp/2.0/palettes/ ... GIMP adds a header. Maybe a GUI interface to load GIMP palettes would do nicely. Not all the GIMP palettes include lots of English names, take note.

Wikipedia's X11 color list links to old and newer rgb.txt files (bottom).

Well it's about time I signed up on Xyne forums. Sorry for all the disjointed notes, but I hope something helped. Thanks!

.desktop file needs an icon
checkbox for 'singleton' limit would be nice (avoid 2 icons in tray)

Beautiful. It has CMYK unlike gcolor2. Would be nice to ship standard sets of color names instead of making them separate manual downloads. Maybe different "collections": terminal color names, CMYK color names, etc.
