Can't add kicad 3D libray to package3d folder in ubuntu18.04

I am using kicad version 5 on ubuntu. I am trying to add a new 3d model to my package 3d (default in Kicad) folder using pcb new preferences-add 3d shape libraries wizard.But it shows an error “It is not possible to write in the selected directory please choose another one”. How can i solve this problem

By choosing another directory. Kicad standard libs are written in a system directory that is not user writable. Your own files and libs should be in a separate location, for example somewhere under $HOME.

It is generally a bad idea to add personal assets mixed into official library assets as the next kicad update will remove your changes.

thanks for your help
