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.
