I'm running Impress 1.1 under Linspire 4.5
I can start a slide show from the command line using -show, but the GUI pops up during the load of the slide show. Does anyone know how to suppress the GUI from showing? I've tried the -minimize and the -noheader in conjunction with the -show but they don't seem to make any difference. Did I miss something? Thanks -DH Cool

You mean the GUI is showing up during the whole slide show or just slightly before the slideshow starts?

No, just before the slide show starts, as the file is loading.

That probably will be hard to do, especially if it's a big file that you're dealing with.
A macro would probably be the easiest way to do this, you can call macros from the command line, like that:
soffice "foo.sxw" "macro:///<lib>.<module>.<function>"

Thanks, good to know I wasn't just missing something. I'll start looking deeper into macros. Thanks again. -DH Cool

No problem Denhamon.
To give you a quick start on this, the slide show interface can be accessed with
Code:

slideshow = thisComponent.Presentation
slideshow.start() 'starts the presentation
