Ok, problem solved - the original problem was that I had not located
system-wide kickerrc and couldn't find any documentation related to
current KDE versions about where it should be (Or everything referred to
$KDEDIRS/config). And as it happened not to
exist at all, I generated one in the proper directory and voila,
problem solved. The fact that the kickerrc doesn't exist at all by default
didn't get through to me.

Ok, so those things I mentioned are actually attributes :)

Hmm.. We did include kmenuedit in the main menu, though the
kmenuedit.desktop file has been customized a bit - so I guess it didn't
like that too much. Anyway, I added a submenu which includes the default
KDE software's and now it seems to be working fine.

Still, shouldn't share/applnk be obsolete already?
