Desktop files don't add kde as a dependency. debhelper deals with
the .desktop file, it just needs to be installed in a certain location.
These particular desktop files need Konqueror to be of any use but that

Yuk. IMHO the package name should reflect the KDE-specific nature of
the package (instead of leaving it to the Depends: line which isn't
visible on a quick search through the cache). What about kpdf-util ?
'Service Menu Pack' is a distortion of what the package contains. I'd
drop 'service' completely from the summary and description - say what
it is: two desktop files to provide extra options for pdf files in KDE.
