Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do as written on below :

cd /root/ooo.2.0/userwordbook and copy standard.dic file from ur source computer and paste it in the same directory to the target computer. The ooo.2.0 (not zero three ooo and one zero) may vary as ur open office version. If u use open office 3.2 then may be it is there as ooo.3.0 like that.

Hope it will work !
