They were there.  Actually, they were in:


	$KDEDIR/share/applnk/Applications/Corel WordPerfect/

but they show up in: "Lost & Found".

I tried moving them to the new directories



Didn't help :-(

So, I edited the file: "/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu" and it worked 
fine till I restarted KDE.  Apparently the file is rebuilt when you start KDE.

If there is some documentation somewhere, I can probably figure it out if 
you would just point me to it.

IIUC, I can add a: "Categories" entry and it will work automatically. 
However WordPerfect is a subdirectory and I don't know how that works.
