Yes. It is independent if it is pptx or odp.
The main point is to open it with Impress.

Confirming with

Version: 6.3.4.2
Build ID: 60da17e045e08f1793c57c00ba83cdfce946d0aa

The problem does not occur when using Export to PDF, which produces a landscape oriented PDF output file.

However, printing to PDF via the macOS printer dialog produces a portrait oriented file, in line with the preview of the output shown in the printer dialog.
Comment 5 Alex Thurgood 2020-01-24 08:05:23 UTC
The question now is whether this is a regression...
Comment 6 eisa01 2020-02-15 23:42:33 UTC
So this seems to be the case back in LO 3.3 too...

The preview in LO 3.3 shows it in landscape, but the produced PDF is in portrait mode - the slides are then rotated, so you need to tilt your head to read :)
Comment 7 Gabor Kelemen 2020-02-28 11:48:37 UTC
I can reproduce this on Win10 and PDF24 virtual PDF printer (but not on other physical ones I have access to), and seems to begun in 6.1 with:

tdf#91362: Use document paper size for printing slides.

Just like this example file: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99183#c6
Comment 8 Timur 2020-03-05 12:48:56 UTC
This was reported Mac and then Gabor confirmed for Win. 
I assume that Page-Layout-Orientation in Print dialog is Automatic? If so, I also repro portrait in Win with Lo 6.3.3. When changed to Landscape, it is fine. 
But I do not repro with master 7.0+, Automatic is already landscaped. 

Please also test with master 7.0+ from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html (unfortunately, no Win, but Mac is there).

This screenshot shows the printer dialog on Mac that the presentation is in portrait orientation.
Expected is landscape orientation.
Comment 11 christoph_egger 2020-03-05 14:30:38 UTC
Looking at the attachment 157857 [details] in bug 99183 and compare that with
attachment 158411 [details] makes me think that these two bugs are different issues because the text in the slide is rotated with the entire page orientation in attachment 158411 [details] while it is *not* rotated in attachment 157857 [details]

Retested with version:

This issue is still present on MacOSX

I retested this in version

Version: 7.1.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: <buildversion>
CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.14.6; UI render: default; VCL: osx
Locale: en-US (en_DE.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

This issue is fixed. Both in the printer dialog and in the PDF file
it is in portrait format. Great work!

Now the buidversion is missing...
I downloaded it from:

https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/MacOSX-x86_64@tb81-TDF/2020-08-14_07.26.35/LibreOfficeDev_7.1.0.0.alpha0_MacOS_x86-64.dmg

I am looking forward to a backport of the fix into production version.

Sorry, I meant "landscape".
