Description of problem:
Presentation attached is shown too slow. And I have Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz processor
and GeForce 8800 GTX with drivers from NVIDIA! And by the way it does not go on
to the next slide automatically. And if I click to force it, music stops.

Seems to work at a fine speed for me with a 6800 GS and the nv driver.

Does toggling tools->options->openoffice.org->view->use hardware acceleration to
off make a difference in speed for you ?
Comment 3 The Source 2007-06-08 13:45:08 EDT
Without "use hardware" option slide show is much faster. But presentation should
go on automatically and it does not. (perhaps it is separate bug). My nvidia
driver version is 100.14.06 by the way.
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2007-06-08 14:08:13 EDT
Well, now we have a problem, these are the nvidia drivers so we can't fix them :-(
But looking at
I would expect that toggling "RenderAccel" may make a difference here, if there
is no RenderAccel line in your xorg.conf try adding one that says true to the
appropiate section, otherwise toggle from false to true or vice versa. Does that
have any effect ?

The additional problem re not changing slides automatically sounds like a
generic ppt import problem, I suggest you submit that to openoffice.org's
issuezilla. I don't have powerpoint to hand to compare the two unfortunately.
Comment 5 The Source 2007-06-08 15:04:00 EDT
RenderAccel is enabled by default. I added this option to xorg.conf just in case
but as I thought it changed nothing.
Comment 6 The Source 2007-06-09 04:29:31 EDT
You know what? The problem is not in the nvidia drivers. I use i810 module on my
work computer and the situation is the same: without "use hardware" option slide
show is much faster.

caolanm->cworth: FYI, cairo sucks :-)
