xcolors and xcolorsel may be used to view system standard colors.
To view/edit colors, there is gcolor2.
BTW, kcolorchooser also works without KDE.

I don't know why I couldn't find those. I spent about an hour looking through the package lists. I probably wasn't holding my mouth right.

Gcolor2 seems to be the most useful although it doesn't save new colors to the database. It is easy to edit rgb.txt though.

Thanks for the help!
