Ive installed OpenLP on both Windows and Linux PCs (Windows on our church, Linux at home). I have been using Easyworship up to now its 2007 version and too expensive to update and OpenLP seems fit for purpose BUT.
On both our PC, PowerPoint .pptx and .ppt when GO LIVE start at end frame, not start. I use Libreoffice at home and in church, which also has MS Office/Powerpoint.
Q1 - how to make sure the slide starts at start when Go Live? I have tried clicking on the Presentation which opens the slides, click on slide 1 but it still goes to end unless I click on slide 1 again. Also on remote same thing; go from say a song to a Presentation, and the presentation always starts at last slide.
Next problem is Linux behaves visually well with slides so far, but Windows 7 will not behave.
When showing a PPT, Windoze brings up two instances of Impress, 1 for Preview and 1 for Live. The projector view brings up a weird window with a larger slide on left, smaller slide on right and Impress controls at bottom of screen, shown below:
Q2 - how to fix up projector presentation display on errant Windoze machine?
