How To Export LibreOffice Impress Slides As Images

I was trying to export individual slides from LibreOffice Impress but I had to select each of the slide and then export it which was getting really really irritating with larger slides. With a quick search, I found an Impress extension that lets you export all the slides at once.

So the addon I was talking about is Export as Images extension which lets you export all the Impress slides or Draw pages into different image formats. The formats supported are JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TIFF format.

Once you install the extension, it adds a menu entry "Export as images..." to File menu and allows you to choose a file name for exported images, image size as well as some other parameters.

Installing Export as Images extension

First grab the extension from HERE or see if newer version is available from HERE.

Once you have downloaded the extension, the installation is pretty straightforward. Open up the Extension Manager from Tools menu and then click on Add. Now navigate to the folder containing your newly downloaded extension and select it. Once the installation succeeds, make sure to restart your LibreOffice Impress to make sure the extension gets activated.

Now open any presentation and to export all the slides as images, go to Files menu where you'll find a new entry Export as images... just below the Export... option.

The GUI for the extension is self explanatory. I hope this proves useful to you :)

Install LibreOffice In Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10

The older 10.x versions of ubuntu, 10.04 Lucid Lynx and 10.10 Maverick Meerkat have and I wanted to install libreoffice for my friends in Lucid Lynx. This How To explains how to install libreoffice in ubuntu 10.04 and ubuntu 10.10 using PPA.

First, we have to remove openoffice in case it is installed. Its better to purge the installation with the following command.

sudo apt-get purge openoffice*.*

Now lets add the Libreoffice PPA repository with the following command.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

Now we need to update our package information for which you have to issue the following update command.

sudo apt-get update

Now we are ready to go for installation of libreoffice. Type one of the following commands according to your desktop environment.

For Gnome Users:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome

sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-kde

This completes your job for installation of the libreoffice. Now leave for package download and you can access the tools from Applications -> Office.

About PPA(Taken from Launchpad
Using a Personal Package Archive (PPA), you can distribute software and updates directly to Ubuntu users. Create your source package, upload it and Launchpad will build binaries and then host them in your own apt repository.

That means Ubuntu users can install your packages in just the same way they install standard Ubuntu packages and they'll automatically receive updates as and when you make them.
