I was working with some .pptx presentations, and when I opened a new .pptx file, a tty appeared and the system reloaded back to the Ubuntu login screen.

Since then, every time I open LibreOffice Impress, the same thing happens. Can anyone help with this?

Can you post the output of /var/log/?dm.log (? = gdm, kdm, ...), /var/log/messages, /var/log/Xorg.0.log and ~/.xsession-errors on – Lekensteyn Mar 3 '11 at 19:47
Could be this bug – user31361 Oct 30 '11 at 8:57

You should look at the logs, to see if you can get the problem. Also, this seems like a bug, and Askubuntu is not the best place to solve it. You can find all the possible ways of asking for a solution here.
I personally recommend you the IRC Channel or the mailing list.
