The explanation on this tutorial should use a placeholder:

<UserInstallationDir>/Scripts/beanshell|java|python


If you are using a standard OpenOffice installed in /opt/
<UserInstallationDir> is $HOME/.openoffice.org/<version>/user/

The self contained installation you downloaded to test, has the user
installation directory inside itself, as you already noticed.
