Ubuntu – How to view and edit PowerPoint presentations that don’t render correctly


I have Microsoft PowerPoint projects that I can view correctly on Android, OS X and Windows, but on Linux with LibreOffice Impress, they are not rendered correctly. Instead, the letters and objects are outside the screen.

I need PowerPoint for my job. Is there a fix for that or an alternative app for PowerPoint compatibility without bugs?

Actually, it may be font issues. Because of Microsoft's fonts are not included in the Linux OS, system substitute with specific fonts.

But these font may not be in same grid size or font attributes.

Try to install Microsoft fonts with following commands in your terminal.

wget http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/m/msttcorefonts/ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i ttf-mscorefonts-installer_3.6_all.deb

Check your documents again. And you should also check fonts such as Arial, Calibri, etc. in font list.
