Sorry,I can not understand.Could you do more explanation? – Mamdouh Nov 25 '12 at 15:45

The ppt you are trying to open in Libre is password protected in MS office. Libre Office cannot open such password protected files. So, for this, Install Wine Windows Program Loader software from Ubuntu software center and then open yout .ppt with it.
