The menu should be simple.  The global menu is rooted at:

NOTE: if you also have $KDEDIRS, that this may add other locations.

However, the local menu can override the global settings.  So, if you
don't want your users to modify it, then change the permissions for
"~/.kde/share/applnk/" and any sub directories -- drop write permission
-- to like root:root:555 and the files root:root:644

Good question.  I don't really know if it would work to put a global:
"kickerrc" file in: "$KDEDIR/share/config/" will work or not.  It
should, but I haven't tried it.

I tried this as above and it didn't work. :-(

The configuration is in the directory: ~/.kde/share/config/"

The various "*rc" files do different things.

Perhaps the kiosk list can be more help.
