Hi,
The build fails when I upload a PPT file on the linux server,but when I
Do the same on a windows server,it works. I need help coz our deployment
server is on Linux. I have chosen the PPT plug with convert_to_html
option. Also,can anyone suggest if I could have a slideshow view in the
viewer without having to open the PPT in the browser.Right now,when we
click on the viewer icon ,the contents of the PPT are displayed on the
browser,can we have a slide show within this viewer with the top options
bar intact. I hope that's clear enough.

Regards,
Chaitra
