Now I want to use this all macro in Linux system using some kind of command

I have some queries : 1) - How to save Macro In Local file instead of libre office (My macros and Dialogues) 2)- When I tried to make macro in libre office local file at that time Its not working Properly, But If I save macro in "My macro and Dialogues" it will work Properly 3) - So how It can be Proper work through local file 4) - I want to use Macro in Linux system, Which I have made in Windows System (My macro and dilogues)

i don't want to save Macro in "My macro and dialogues" I want to save macro in any other local file which I can use any other PC

I really don't know how to use macro from Windows system to Linux system If anybody knows then let me know

Some years ago the option to set the path to a basic library in the options dialog had been removed, because it had produced a lot of problems. Now the basic libraries are always inside the user directory of LibreOffice. If different users need write access to the same macros, that is not possible.

If you will only read and use the macros without altering them, then it might be possible. Make a new library (export from "standard" is not possible) and put the macros into that library. Then export the library to an already existing folder. From the other system import the library, and thereby check to only link it. If you alter the library from the first instance of LibreOffice and re-export it, then the other instance needs to be restart to get the changes too. That works on Windows, but I cannot test whether it works between Windows and Linux, because I have no Linux installed here.

If your macro is a user defined function for to use in a cell in a spreadsheet, then it must be in "Standard" in "My macros and Dialogs" because of bug . In that case, you have no chance to use the macro across different users without manually copying it.
