      Description

      Hi

      This issue was already reported to KDE developers.

      https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=415927

      Read the comment from a developer please:

      "Not sure if this can be addressed in QColorDialog. In Wayland, it is explicitely forbidden to read the screen contents. KWin offers an infrastructure for screenshot applications. I am not sure if the protocols used there use a standard that Qt could follow.

      I suggest to report this to Qt developers (as a bug for QColorDialog)."
