[gcmd-usr] set default viewer to eog and default text ed to gedit

I have Xubuntu 12.04 64 bit installed.

This has been frustrating me for over a year

Right now Gnome Commander insists my default viewer is Ristretto and my default text editor is leafpad.

both gedit and eog (as "image viewer" show up in the "open with" list when I right click on a file using gnome-commander.

I have tried changing settings in using the gnome-commander Settings>Options menu. in the Viewer: box I have eog %s and in the Editor: box I have gedit %s and i REMOVED Ristretto completely from the system. So now if I double click on an image file nothing happens until I right click and choose Image Viewer from the "Open With" part of the drop down menu. To further annoy me Image Viewer is down at the bottom of the choices.

I was experimenting with various new text editors and downloaded Leafpad, which I would liek to keep on the system but not have it be the default text editor that gnome-commander brings up. However as soon as I installed leafpad from apt-get it appeared as the default text editor for gnome-commander. I can still open it from the "Open With" drop down menu.

HELP will be appreciated

Ristretto is a very limited program and I do not find it useful and I really dislike the menu layout on it.

I have completely removed Ristretto from teh system and rebooted but that did not help
