There is currently a bug in Qt with stylus management that doesn't allow to access a standard way to "Pop-up palette" in Krita. "Pop-up palette" is a selector tool that pop-up with right mouse button or stylus button (by default the most far from pen nib) and allow to access quickly to several brush and color chooser.

It currently display with long press but disappear when the button is released, and so, don't allow to access this tool. a normal click have the same behavior.

It seems to impact all tablets, as a tablet independent bug (the tablet button signal handling works fine), Tested on Huion Kamvas Pro and Wacom Intuos.

As a workaround, it can be accessed by a very very short click on this button, or by right clicking on the canvas by the mouse at any speed, the mouse isn't impacted at all.

Another way, is to download the Krita appimage package from Krita official website, it contains a patched Qt version.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
Krita 4.3.0
Qt5 5.15.1-1

* link to upstream bug report

Steps to reproduce:
* Launch Krita
* Try to access to "Pop-up Palette" selector with second button on pencil.
This task depends upon

Please find out which of the multiple Krita Qt patches is relevant here, otherwise there's nothing we can do about this
