I know. I installed it and also myspell-fr but got no uk/fr spellcheck in openoffice
(i rebooted my system after installing dicts to be sure).
i still had icons only near russian and en-us in format->symbols->language list.
I installed openoffice.org-l10n-uk (I actually use ru_RU.UTF-8 locale and openoffice.org-l10n-ru) but that didn't help.
can you please do the same on your system and check whether it will work for you?
(this has to be done with ooo 3.0 and not with 2.4, obviously)

I don't suggest removing myspell-*, I just say that they don't work for ooo3.

How can I check this?
myspell-* and openoffice.org* are installed from vanilla debian repository (sid).
I believe that the only non-vanilla-debian thing in my system
(which runs for over a year now, and I regularly upgrade from debian sid/experimental)
is the kernel. I even removed mepis config tools cause they conflicted with debian's new ooo.
