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:

/usr/share/applications/defaults.list

Change the line that starts with application/pdf= to

application/pdf=kde4-okularApplication_pdf.desktop;gimp.desktop

Actually there is a long discussion about the issue focusing on it being a Firefox issue in the openSUSE forums.

There is also a discussion on whether correct way is to edit /etc/gnome_defaults.conf but editing this file in openSUSE 11.4 and running SuSEconfig --module glib2 as root didn't have the desired effect.
