Hello,
I was wondering...how do you change a file association when the program you want to use is not in the default "open with" list. Moreover, how do I use the "use a custom command" box to choose the program I want. Is there a way I can browse to the program, sort of like how you can browse to the .exe file in windows? Thanks.

Right click on the file
Select "open with other application"
left click on triangle next to "Use a custom command"
Left click on browse
Double click on "file system"
search under "user/I believe it's sbin or bin" for the application
double click on application and close "Open With"

Hope this helps
