Whenever I try to modify a cell background in calc (Format>Format Cell>Background), all of the color options are set to white. How do I get the palette back?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with LibreOffice 3.5.2.2 Build ID: 350m1(Build:202).

The palettes are located in your user profile, at .config/libreoffice3/user/config/. Additionally, there's a set of palettes in /opt/libreoffice3.5/presets/config/. Take a look for files ending with .soc - all those files are palettes. I assume you will have to restore standard.soc in your user profile.

Try to reset the user profile!

How to reset LibreOffice user Profile?

  • Make sure LibreOffice is closed.

  • Open your home directory and Hit Ctrl+H to show the hidden files and folders.

  • Now navigate to /.config/libreoffice/3/user/

  • Rename "registrymodifications.xcu" to "registrymodifications.xcu.old".

  • Now start LibreOffice (Any application e.g LibreOffice Calc).

  • LibreOffice will automatically create a new user profile.

In case you want to restore the old user profile, Just delete the newly created "registrymodifications.xcu" and rename "registrymodifications.xcu.old" to "registrymodifications.xcu"
