I'm following a on-line course about intellectual property. The professor uses interactive maps or schemes where the themes are displayed. Beside every theme is a plus sign wich opens new content when clicked. The presentation was created with MindManager (Mindjet) but the files are downloadable in PDF, so they can be viewed with Acrobat Reader.

enter image description here

The thing is I've tried with the Ubuntu document viewer and with Okular but all I get is one page that says "click to start Mindjet presentation" and it doesn't work.

Here are the conceptual maps if you need to read the instructions or download them

I tried it and an error ocurred, it says "A 3D data parsing error ocurred" – Pablo Viollier Mar 22 '13 at 16:06

I downloaded and tried one of the files and it works, but it is a bit tricky. First you need adobe reader 9.4.1 (not a newer one because I read that adobe does not launch newer versions for linux with flash capabilities). The link is this one:

There are still some differences. The plus sign is not working, but if you highlight any of the boxes and click right on the mouse, a menu appears where you can select to collapse topic, show 1 level, 2 levels and all levels. For highlighting correctly (in blue) the boxes I actually must click above the mouse.
