On my system (13.1/KDE 4.11.5), Okular is also the default app associated with
.pptx. I tried all the .pptx files on my system (12), and everyone of them
crashed Okular on startup.
I think the more import issue is why do you have your system configured
so that it even tries to use okular on pptx.
Got to systemsettings -> file associations and ut "ppt" in the search

Heck, do you even have Libreoffice, Openoffice or Callibra installed?
And what release/updates of openSuse, KDE and Okular are you running?
However I found this blog post, and one of the commenters claims Okular does
open pptx for him:
I wonder if some buildtime/runtime dependency for Okular is missing on

The page at

carried out on them.
As the man pages says, you can consult the online manua with

I can see no mention whatsoever in any of these sources of Okular being
able to handle MS-office documents such as powerpoint, be it compressed
This is exactly one of those little polish issues,
which have a pretty big
impact on the user experience, and which are probably fairly easy to fix.
Indeed, and I wonder why you persist in trying to get okular to handle
powerpoint when "the rst of us" seem to find out configurations
I once made a collection of the 20-30 most common file
types, and checked what
happened when simply clicking each of them in KDE on every openSUSE beta -
actually quite often the mime-type associations are pretty bad, meaning that
supported file types don't open, or open in undesirable apps. Maybe I should
start doing that again when testing 13.2.
I'm wondering if you started out with some alpha/beta release that had
these oddball configurations and somehow they were never updated with
the setting that those of us who did a straight forward install have.
Really: do you have LibreOffice installed? My take, and I may be
incorrect, is that when a package such as LibreOffice is installed, the
mime settings are updated to deal with the capability it now offers.
