$ kde-config --types
xdgconf-menu - XDG Menu layout (.menu files)
xdgdata-apps - XDG Application menu (.desktop files)
xdgdata-dirs - XDG Menu descriptions (.directory files)
$ kde-config --path xdgdata-app

Yupp, /usr/local before /usr ;)

to prevent unnecessary lookups.

  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
