I updated my machine and need to add my customer color palette (soc file) to my new LibreOffice installation. Copying it into share/palette is blocked by a read-only file system, for a reason I assume. Where is the user local space for custom color palettes? I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and snap and I guess it is somewhere in $HOME/snap/libreoffice but where exactly? Thanks!
