Specific to gnome and not to ubuntu:
You can simply locate the file in nautilus and select open with...
Choose the DrScheme binary and then go to the file properties -> open
with (drscheme should already show up) and select it as default. Now
gnome-open should open ss from drscheme... repeat for scm if you wish.
