I have a lot of plots (made by gnuplot) in pdf format. I want to put them into my presentation. I tried two things, and I had no luck.
I simply drag and drop a small pdf image to my slide, then LibreOffice loads the "Insert Text" dialoge, and if I click on OK, it inserts a text-box full of rubbish into my slide.
I click on "Insert -> Picture -> From File..." from the menu and try to find my pdf file. But in the file selection dialoge I can't find my pdf file (it's not listed) although the file extension filter on this window is set to <all formats="">.
Is it possible somehow to insert pdf images to an Impress presentation, or it's not possible?
BTW, I run LO 188.8.131.52 in Ubuntu 12.04.

pdfimport might work for most cases. But some special characters (Greek symbols for example) were missing. My solution was to open the document using GIMP, then select whatever you want and paste it.

To use the image saved in the PDF, you can open the PDF file (using the default Document Viewer in Ubuntu), right-click and select "Save image as " and save it in any image format (say JPG or PNG).
Once that's done, you can now use "Insert --> Picture --> From file" option and choose the saved image.
