Actually problem was a bit complex. I had installed certain packages using freshubuntu (something similar)repository. Later on i purged that repository. Because of this my certain packages got somewhat locked, i.e. couldn't update which created such issues. Solution: open synaptic look for obsolete packages. find the packages for those packages from launchpad replace them.

What is happening, is that Libreoffice has opened another, fullscreen window for the presentation. To get out of it, hit escape. As for getting the slides to display properly, I have no idea. I was trying to do a presentation tonight and this tripped me up. I can't comment or upvote yet, so please Someone help us out.
