Try libreoffice-impress.

What are you using to open the file?
What version of Ubuntu are you using?

@actionparsnip: to be honest, I suspect that this is a fake question, created for the purpose of promoting some dubious "repair xyz files" web page. If the original poster has a problem with a Microsoft product, why does he post that on Ubuntu support pages instead of a Microsoft forum?

As predicted. A link to a web page.

This is misuse of the Launchpad pages for unsolicited commercial offers.

Can you help with this problem?
