another .odp file which shows the problem
Hi Frederic, your files contains graphics which are in metafile format, it's indicated in the status bar when you select the graphic. As a workaround, if you right click on it and select convert to bitmap, the graphic is shown in the slideshow. May be you can give us an indication on how you produced the graphics?
I confirm the issue with metafiles that are not shown in slideshows. Set as New - Sophie
Thanks for the workaround.
Unfortunately I don't remember how I created those graphics.
Actually, the conversion to bitmap fails on my version (ubuntu 13.04).
These images have probably been created by inserting a .eps image.
Frederic, you're right, the conversion fails with the 4.1.3 version on Ubuntu. Yesterday, I tested it with the future 4.2 version which will be available next year and it works there. Sorry about that. If I can help with the conversion of this specific file, just send it at my address directly, I'll convert it for you. Sophie
This looks like a dupe of fdo#34836, see also:
Could you please recheck, if you have the needed software installed?

The second one probably indicates OOo. Not a solution, but perhaps some useful information.

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
I have checked that I have pstoedit installed on my computer.
This bug is still present on debian 7 with LO 4.2.4.
I think it is not matter to know how the eps file has been created, if it appears in the editor, it should appear in slide show too.
I can't reproduce this anymore, tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice Version: 184.108.40.206.beta2
Build ID: a06aa316117a6ff0f05c697c82831c227812d810
@Frederic: can you please test again using LibreOffice 4.3 http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/?version=4.3.0
Sorry my bad, still reproducible. Didn't start the slideshow (only in edit-mode). In edit mode it is visible. Ignore my comment.
Tested on Linux Mint and this is a regression in 4.0.6, 4.1.6, and 4.2.4. It works fine in 3.3.0, 3.6.7, 4.2.5, 4.2.6 and 4.3 beta 2 in the slideshow.

I can confirm this behaviour for Debian 7 x86_64 running v220.127.116.11 (no display in slide show mode) and Crunchbang 11 x86_64 running v18.104.22.168 (does display in slide show mode). Summary amended for clarity.
As its a confirmed fix in 4.2.5, i'm closing it.
