If you are missing GNOME stuff in KDE menus, and KDE and GNOME are installed
with different prefixes, the solution is that you need to make a symbolic link
or links so that the GNOME stuff that is in "<GNOME prefix>/share/" can be
accessed with: "<KDE prefix>/share/".
So, for the icons you would need:
<KDE prefix>/share/pixmaps -> <GNOME prefix/share/pixmaps
Or, are you missing more than just the GNOME icons?
In any case, KDE will only find (global) icons in the directory trees rooted at:
Icons in other places can only be specified with a full path.
There are archives for the lists:
and you can search them with Google advanced search.
