by any change, did your system update from OOo 2 to OOo 3? Your OOo
Basic problem reported below looks like an issue from 2009, see

It looks like your setting where deleted, you will have to set
a default template again:

- File - Templates - Organize
- In "My Templates" select the template you want to set as default
- In "Commands" choose "Set As Default Template"

The default template information is stored in the OpenOffice registry,
in the user profile directory (in latest OpenOffice version in a file
named registrymodifications.xcu). A good solution is to create an
extension with your default settings, then you install this extension in
every computer you use.

Are you trying the steps I enumerated above? If they don't work, then
your installation is somehow broken.

It looks like an error other users reported:

This might be something solved in Debian with a later package update.
Sorry I can't tell, Debian used Go-oo, an OpenOffice fork, not the
vanilla OOo.

In any case, if you don't find a solution in Debian, simply try copying
the files from

OpenOffice does not include this basic code anymore (dictionaries are
now deployed as extensions).
