I am unable to open powerpoint ppt files. When I try it, I get a dialog box asking me to select encoding (UTF-8) and a font type and a language.
I know this is the same question/problem as this: Impress not able to open Microsoft Powerpoint file
The answer there was to use a newer version of LibreOffice, i.e. version 3.6. I am using version Version 18.104.22.168 (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2)) on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit.
How can I tell LibreOffice to open the file with Impress?
