 From the help file for gnome....

To modify the actions associated with a file or file type, perform the 
following steps:

1. In the view pane, select a file of the type to which you want to 
modify the action.
2. Choose File ▸ Properties.
3. Choose Open With tabbed section.
4. Use Add or Remove buttons to tailor the list of actions. Select the 
default action with the option to the left of the list.

Not sure of a way to edit the entire list of filetypes actions ...

The detection of filetype is done by magic (man magic) ... :)
