Not a bug. OpenOffice.org 2.4.1 does not support MS-office 2007 file formats. Only OpenOffice.org 3.0 can.


Could the bug be closed as invalid because of version provided in both hardy and intrepid ?

Fred: that's wrong. The OOo in Ubuntu is built from go-oo.org, and it does include the ability to open Office 2007 formats. In fact, I'm pretty sure Gutsy could do it.

Could you attach screenshots of how the presentation should look and how it actually does look?

I'm the Ubuntu OOo maintainer...

It looks so wrong its actually hard to describe. When opened in OOo it looks like you see part of the windows desktop(?) which isn't there at all when displayed under PowerPoint 2007.

I'll take a look at this more later when determining if this should go to go-oo or upstream.
