You can use Libre Office Impress (or Open Office Impress), which are very powerpoint alike. If you want a pointer then go for any USB, all of them are recognized out of the box in Linux (as a mouse).

After discussion with the poster on chat, starting http://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/20047753#20047753, it turned out the poster's machine is missing /usr/lib/python2.7, see http://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/20052960#20052960.

It doesn't really answer your question "how", but should give you a bit of insight - and it's too long for a comment. First of all, you can't boot of an encrypted partition. Simply because a the boot chain does understand encryption only fairly late in the process: hardware loads firmware - typically BIOS of UEFI (on x86 platform). The hardware as such is ...

I have had a similar problem on Debian before. I found a few ways to try to fix it. The first is to disable all Ethernet connections and make sure no start up script initiates any Ethernet connections. Then setup WiFi on start-up to automatically connect to your WiFi endpoint. You could try this in a start-up script: service network-manager restart ...

So this is only sort-of supported in Mint. I eventually found out that you can use this: gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme 'Emacs' Although Emacs keybindings don't work in a lot of cinnamon apps (like the file browser for example), they do work in Chrome and the text editor. See the thread on github for more information: ...
