Right click on the file in dolphin and select properties from the menu. In the 
General page, to the far right of the line that says "Type" should be a 
spanner icon button. Click on it to reach the file association dialog for that 
file type. Now select the application that is listed on top and select "Edit". 
Here you should be presented with a dialog that allows you to click on the 
icon to change it.

The above should also be possible from the file association settings. However, 
you should contact your distribution as this seems the result of broken 
packaging. Hope that helps.
