    Open With Program


    Hey all

    I'm sure it is right under my nose.. but how would i go about changing the program that is used to default open certain file extensions? For example rather then have Totem open .mpg have it open in VLC? I've looked around the settings and prefs and must be missing it. Oh, this is in GNOME, I can find it in KDE. Thanks!
