How to change default application for opening pdf files in openSUSE

Gnome applications in openSUSE 11.4 apparently defaults to opening pdf files in Gimp. Okular would be a more sane choice here. To get that to work you need to edit the file:

I'll keep you updated on this issue.

Next thing to notice was that the three finger gesture for switching back and forth in Google Chromes browser now did not work anymore (in safari it was changed to a two finger gesture). The three finger gesture switched between spaces instead it seems. Here there were an easy fix. Go to "System Preferences" > "Trackpad" …
