By default there isn't a list of applications unless that type has been registered in the system for a specific app. You will have go go I to the /usr/bin directory or the applications directory (see where app is located at) to tell it to open with that app.
I've found sometimes if I open like transmission it'll register .torrent file associations. I'm unsure of how else to target it without manually locating the application.

I keep trying to open files/links for torrents or software center links, etc that I don't have a default application for in Xubuntu and it brings up that dialog box that says:
"This link needs to be opened with an application. Send to:
Choose an Application"
I hit choose and it opens up my downloads folder..
Shouldn't there be a list of applications or something?
I don't have to navigate to where the program is installed in my filesystem do I?
I sure hope not.
Also is this the right list to be asking this again?
