Playing a powerpoint CD under Mint6

Postby mipcar on Fri May 15, 2009 9:12 pm

Up till now anything I've had on a cd or file (media) has always played fine under Mint 6.
I tried a cd the other day which was a powerpoint format and Linux tried to open it but said it was a format it could not understand.

What program should I install? It's not the cd as under windows it auto ran and played fine.

Have you tried opening it in openoffice Presentation? if that fails you could always install ms office in wine

I did not specifically try presentation as in past occasions Mint knew what it wanted and loaded the program automatically but I'll try manually starting presentation and see what happens.
