Hello.
When I have try to open this file :
http://www.onisep.fr/equipeseducatives/concours/concours_b2i/archives/2009/Golbey_3e_DP_College_Louis_Armand.ppsx
OOo can't open it.
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2009-05-03 16:09:19 UTC
OOo hasn't got a filter for ppsx.

Issue 103781 looks like a duplicate of this one.

Generating the list of filters with the Basic script found at

  http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Framework/Article/Filter

I see a "Impress MS PowerPoint 2007 XML AutoPlay" filter in OOo 3.1.1. Still
.ppsx files cannot be opened automatically, the "Filter Selection" dialog always
appear.

Now, if you select "Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 XML" in the dialog (that is, when
you eventually manage to find the right entry, because it shows tens of filters
in random order) then the document is displayed correctly. So would it not be
possible to just reuse the .pptx filter for .ppsx as well?

The really weird thing, and my true problem, is that I couldn't find any way to
have OOo open a .ppsx filter programmatically using loadComponentFromURL, not
even setting the above "Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 XML" as "FilterName" in the
MediaDescriptor.

As mnasato says above, ppsx files work if you use the "Microsoft PowerPoint 2007
XML" filter when opening in Impress (if you can find it in the shockingly badly
presented list.)

That being the case, please make it automatically work and associate .ppsx files
with Impress on installation, as is done for the .pptx extension.

Sorry, this method does not work with AOO 4.0.1
Try to open a ppsx or a pptx
Choose the "Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 XML" filter in the dialog
Calc open a blank sheet
