Thanks guys Smile

Can you not just copy the hidden user file (or just the [USER HOME].openoffice.org2.0/user/wordbook) to all users on all machines throughout the network?

Log on as root and use scp to copy the file to each user's account

Or use rsync or ...

If you use rsync you may be able to copy between user accounts without logging in as root.

If the data is to be used in different user accounts then either rsync or scp will need root access.

Of course, another solution is to have the dictionaries on a common mounted area and then use ln to link them to each user's home.

I think you should only need to give the password for the user on the machine you are copying to. I just have two machines on my home "network" and that's all I do to back up the home directory on one to the other, i.e. I give the rsync command:

$ rsync -r -t -v --progress -l --delete /home/my_username 192.168.1.1:/home

and I am then asked for the user's password on the machine I am copying to.

If you are going to have all the machines or at least the "server" running all the time.

Good point - if you know all of the users' passwords then then you don't need root access

rsync sounds like it can be used to syncrinise 2 diff hard drives as well ?
