That depends very much on which desktop environment you are using
within Ubuntu.  I believe the newer 11.04 uses a customised desktop of
their own devising (not GNOME/KDE/Xfce).

I don't use Ubuntu myself, so can't provide any insight, but a little
searching leads to these possible solutions of how to set file
associations...

Failing that try the Ubuntu Forums themselves, lots of helpful people there,
