It depends which File Manager you are using. Usually, Gnome comes with Nautilus and KDE with Konqueror. If you are using Nautilus, there should be an option at the main menu to "Associate applications", take a look there. Konqueror should be similar, but I'm just guessing it

in nautils select the file - then right click -selct "open with other application"

by default it will show the default applications list

if you want a specific application select "go there " and specify the application name and icon type
