ODP (OpenDocument Presentation) is an open standard for digital document format comparable to Microsoft PPTX. We use LibreOffice Impress to access odp files. By using soffice command line, you can convert multiple odp files at once. Imagine you have 1000 odp files and need to have them as pdf as soon as possible. Then this command is for you. We use some odp templates from templates.libreoffice.org to demonstrate the process.
soffice --headless --convert-to pdf *.odp
Important note: you should close all running LibreOffice windows before running this command otherwise it won't work.
The sample result is shown below. Left = odp, right = pdf.
As the references, we use three samples of LibreOffice Impress template from:
