Kevin, Thanks for quick response. Actually I am using KDE 3.3.1. Any
help for this version?

Depends a bit on the version of KDE you are using.

KDE from 3.4 on uses the freedesktop.org menu specification, earlier
use KDE internal locations.

Assuming the first, the directories used for searching for menu entries
can be 
determined like this:

$ kde-config --path xdgdata-apps

The directories searched for menu structure files like this:

$ kde-config --path xdgconf-menu

The specification for the entry files can be found here

the specification for menu files here
