Is there any way to display the slides randomly? (Like a 'shuffle' option, that would display each slide once but not in the initial order). I can't find anything about it...

Shuffling the slides is not a standard function. You could write a bit of code to create it.

Each presentation can have multiple lists of slides. These are called 'Custom Slide Shows'. See the menu item 'Slide shows -> Custom Slide Show'.

If you look inside the content.xml file of your .odp file (unzip it), you can see the simple way in which a custom slide show is created:

<presentation:settings presentation:show="MyRandomPresentation" presentation:mouse-visible="false">
    <presentation:show presentation:name="MyRandomPresentation" presentation:pages="page2,page1"/>

The attribute presentation:pages points to the slides by name.

Perhaps it is possible to create macro to make a random presentation.
