Regarding an equivalent routine that will run on Matlab in linux and export the figures to a non-MS PowerPoint equivalent (i.e., OpenOffice), I have not seen anyone achieve this as of yet.

Since Linux does not use ActiveX it would have to use some different protocal to get the figures graphics into OpenOffice.

I am interested in this, and would welcome any progress people make on it. I imagine by learning more about OO and the Linux clipboard, it could be done.

We are leaning towards an alternative approach of using Matlab to
instead generate a LaTeX output directly, using .EPS figures
generated in Matlab. This involves straightforward ASCII text
generation (like fprintf commands). LaTeX also does have a PPT analog, in Slitex, which has now been superceded by the "slides" document class in LaTeX2e. One could port the graphics into a PPT-style document. Albeit, it is not exactly PPT but would look similar.

At this point, we have some scripts to produce LaTeX-generated, report-style documents with Matlab figures embedded in them. This is all done automatically so that the .tex code is generated at the same time as the .eps figure files. The .tex file can also be compiled by Matlab to produce a finished PDF with the figure
graphics embedded.

It seems like it would be a fairly straightforward extension to take
this existing code and use it to port the Matlab graphics into a
Latex-based briefing chart style (slides document class).

If people want more info on this, please let me know.

I don't think that the LaTeX "slides" documentclass is as fancy as PPT/OOin terms of ability to do animations, etc. But if you mainly want Matlab to produce a document that consolidates a large number of figure graphics into one file (for ease of viewing and data analysis), then it might satisfy these needs on a Linux platform.

Do the authors or others know if there is an equivalent routine that will run on Matlab in linux and export the figures to a non-MS PowerPoint equivalent (eg, OpenOffice or StarOffice).
Thanks! Jeff
