Occasionally I recieve PowerPoint Presentations attached to email. In order to view them I have installed Wine:

and ppviewer2003.exe:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=428D5727-43AB-4F24-90B7-A94784AF71A4&displaylang=en

I stayed away from PowerPointViewer2007 due to size, 1.9MB vs 27MB.

I am attaching a .pet which will add MSPowerPointView to your Graphics menu, OpenWith menu and make it the default opener for .ppt and .pps files. You will have to install Wine and ppviewer first.

In order to open attachments in Opera I had to:

Download->Open->/usr/local/bin/defaultslideshow-ppt->open

I also checked the box not to ask again. .ppt attachments now play as soon as I click Open.

Note: tested on puppy4.0
