Convert pdf to PowerPoint.

There's no point in doin it (W pdf!), but it's possible. Read this page.

All you need is OpenOffice Impress (oo2 have better exporting than oo1, but oo1 will do it) and perl.

The command to make png's from pdf can be this (note the %02).

gs -dNOPAUSE -g1024x768 -r205 -sDEVICE=pngalpha \

   -sOutputFile=Talkimg_%02d.png  -dBATCH Talk.pdf

then run the script etc, open the Impress presentation and save in ppt. You'll have a beautiful ppt presentation made of fullscreen png's.
