Helena and Open Office Impress... (Partially SOLVED)

Postby tenfoot on Mon Jan 11, 2010 2:09 am

Quite frequently I am sent Microsoft Powerpoint files and when using Gloria with Impress v3.01 I had no difficulty in opening them. However, there appears to be a problem with Helena using Impress v3.1.1, in that clicking on the file leads to it briefly opening and then going to a black screen. Pressing the Escape key briefly reveals the file again and then exits.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, please? If so, did you manage to solve it?

Edit: I have found that if I open Impress first, I can then open the .pps document. However, it is a tad annoying that I cannot just click on the file and have it open as it used to when I was using Gloria,

Tried to find a solution for this but that was hopeless so I'm glad you found a workaround
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
