Hi list,
Quite some time ago I had a problem with the ppt plugin (I'm using GS v.
2.80 on a Linux box) and have hobbled along a bit ever since, sometimes
successfully other times not. Put simply, I seem to be getting rather
too many 'Powerpoint 95/97 converter failed' messages after things are
processed - far too many in fact, so I'm asking if there is perhaps a
newer version of this plugin that I can bring into my 2.80 - or would I
need to update to 2.81 and will that fix things anyway in this regard?
Since I now have a very large DL with some 200,000 items in it, any
upgrading takes time and effort which I'd prefer to avoid for a while.
Occasionally I've overcome the problem by using the unknown plugin but
that's not a perfect way to handle things. I'd much prefer if the ppt
plugin would do its job. I'm quite sure I can't have that many faulty
Powerpoint presentations!
Anyone got any thoughts on this one?
