I want to use the Presentation Minimizer tool in LibreOffice, on Natty 64bit. I have the package libreoffice-presentation-minimizer installed (it is enabled by default). In OOo, the minimizer tool appeared in the Tools menu, but I cannot find the option there.

It's still there on Natty 32 bits, 6th option in the Tools menu. Maybe it's a 64bits issue. – Javier Rivera Apr 27 '11 at 16:02

You will need to manually add the Sun Presentation Minimizer (from Open Office) e.g. with Tools -> Extension Manager.

Thank you! It worked – geoffrey Apr 27 '11 at 20:43
This doesn't work anymore with LO 3.5: "Loading component library failed" Any idea why? – stragu Mar 26 '12 at 7:04
@chtfn: doesn't the libreoffice-presentation-minimizer work in the meantime? – Takkat Mar 26 '12 at 7:31

There is no need to install separate extensions as of LibreOffice 3.3.

As seen in the release notes, the minimizer extension is now included in the main program.
