I checked with a MacBookPro and there, LibO Impress has a menu point "SlideShow" open this menu and select "Start from...".

View >> Toolbars >> Presentation. This toolbar includes an icon for "Run presentation from first slide (F5)" - consists of a picture of a screen with a superimposed blue arrow. fn + F5 does the same thing.
