This entirely depends on how are you opening the file. Most file browsers / desktops will show a context menu with an "open with" option on it.

Web browsers usually have an option somewhere to let you specify file associations.

etc. etc. etc.

I really can't be any more concrete without knowing any more details on what are you doing.

Right click on the file and select properties, you'll see the "Open with" button there, select appropriate program to open the file from the next time, click ok and you're done...

Sayan already provided the solution, but maybe you missed the relevant point. I can try to rephrase (we assume you're using the default GNOME desktop manager)
1) Right-click on a PDF file and select Properties
2) Switch to the Open With tab
3) Select the desired default application from the list
4) Close
From now on, all the PDF files will be open using the selected application. If you prefer to set-up things from the command line, here is a good starting point. In addition you can check the official Red Hat and/or GNOME documentation to find out.
