You need to setup your MIME type so that it is associated with the application you want to
use. In the: "File Associations" section of the Konqueror KCM, choose:
You should be able to install Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer with the current version of
WINE. If you want a better user interface for installing Windows applications, you can
purchase CrossOver Office from CodeWeavers.
If using WINE and Microsoft Power Point Viewer, you might want to write a script so that
you don't need a long command line in your '*.desktop' file'.
Or, you can use OpenOffice or KOffice.
