I have found this problem when installing ubuntu from the Server installation up. Sadly there is an error in the Openoffice Package and it does not do a SPELL CHECK.
I do not know if you have tried sudo apt-get install myspell-en-uk (or us as the case may be). That has fixed it before on my system but It did not fix it recently.
I believe that Myspell is Updating an Openoffice link that is stored in a different directory. You may be able to patch the link file if you do a search for it.
The best solution is to download the latest package from openoffice and recompile from source.
Can you please file a bug report on this! I have filed one in the past and I will refile. This is Ultra important!

I'm making a rather large document in OOo 1.1.3 and I've found that the
spell checker doesn't find any misspelled words. It seems to run and
asks me if I want to continue from the top of the document then it says
the the spellcheck is complete. I've deliberately misspelled a few
words just to see if it picks them out but it doesn't find them either.
I have the EN language packs and thesaurus installed.
This is a former Warty laptop that I upgraded to Hoary. And I'm
wondering if that is why I have OOo 1.1.3 instead of 2.0. I had some
problems doing a dist-upgrade on my desktop and ended up doing a
reinstall. I would do that on my laptop but I don't want to take a
chance on losing data while I'm not at home (I'm nearing the end of a
three week trip) and dependent the laptop.
So does anyone know how I can make the spellchecker function?
(Spellcheck works fine in Thunderbird, btw.)
