Andrzej may know more, here is what I tested / works for me:

1. Start Impress
2. In Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Impress -> General, enable
   Presentation -> Enable remote control
3. Restart Impress

(This is necessary only once.)


4. Open any presentation
5. Connect via the Android app, you should be able to control via
Bluetooth, as long as the devices are already paired once.

I don't remember I ever used the "Impress Remote" dialog. I hope Andrzej
knows in what situation its usage is necessary. :-) If it's just
necessary in the wireless case (which is enabled in experimental mode
only), then we should hide that menu item in non-experimental mode as

As Petr said, feel free to open a bugreport and assign it to me, I'll
try to take care of it.
