If you right click a pdf file (in nautilus) and select properties. Click the Open With tab. If
okular isn't in the list, click Add. It brings up a list of application. If okular isn't in the
list, select "Use a custom command" and type in okular. Okular should be added to the Open With
list. Click the circle to make it the default application.
