I have two screens set up on my desktop, the second is a projector. For obvious reasons I would like to have the secondary screen ( projector) display the full-screen view of OO Presentation.

I am using an NVIDIA Graphics card and the NVIDIA X Server settings.

Yes it is possible.

Go to Slide Show -> Slide Show Settings... and select the desired display as your Presentation display.

enter image description here

Now if you start your presentation using F5 it will be displayed on the selected display.

The same applies for LibreOffice.
