KDE 3.2 uses the new XDG dir locations. Almost all desktop files should
now be under /usr/share/applications, for some reason not all of them
were moved yet. It should work as is, unless there is some sort of
problem with your .kde dir. The new menu file (/etc/xdg/...) looks in
both locations for backwards compatibility.
