Sorry Kevin, that does not work. The right-click is disabled on the task
bar only,  but not on the KDE icon (start-of-menu icon).

The context menu action of Kicker can be restricted with kiosk using

[KDE Action Restriction]

in kickerrc, either in the user's one (.kde/share/config/kickerrc) or in
global one (actually at any level of KDEDIRS)

You can additionally mark it immutable, especially when you add it to
global configuration.
