i am using libre office not open office by the way

Ok I just installed this and had a play, try this:

mv ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/gallery ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/gallery_old
ln -s /usr/share/openclipart/png ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/gallery

Now run impress.

Insert -> Picture -> From file

Click to show previews and go nuts :)

Can you help with this problem?
