Disclaimer: As I say, I never used Impress before version 2.2 as I had
no need for it at home, so I'm not sure if this possible on earlier

Somebody said that playing sounds needs the Java Media Framework and
that the Ubuntu version is already fitted up for this. I'm not sure if
this is right, but here's the rundown:

1. Set up a new presentation
2. Click on the "Insert" menu and select "video and sound".
3. Select whichever media file you wish to insert.
4. Place it wherever.
5. Press F5 to start the slideshow.

Fairly standard, not to mention identical to the same procedure in
Powerpoint, so I'm not sure what kind of problem the OP was
experiencing. Perhaps Java needs  to be installed? I never configured
Oo.o to do anything special.
