Despite there is a shortcut (O) and a color picker already available from the tool box, I used to pick a color on my screen by clicking on the color selector and
then clicking on the color picker. However since this gimp version, no matter where I click, I just get black.
I really tried to click every where and I only have one layer selected.

To sum up:

Shortcut (O) => working
Toolbox/color picker => working
Toolbox/color selector/ color picker => not working

Additional info:
* package version(s)
Gimp 2.10.10
KDE plasma
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

1) Click on the color selector as shown here (color tool box on the left):

2) Then select the color picker

3) Try to pick a color on your layer or anywhere on your screen

You should obtain black each time you try this way.
