Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of that. However, I installed a 
non-KDE program (acroread) which I would like to appear in the KDE menus 
of all users.

Check that the application installed its .desktop file into the right 
The freedeskop.org specification says that would be a subdirectory of 
KDE before 3.2 uses KDEPREFIX/share/applnk

It should automatically appear in the menu, at least at KDE restart or 
running kbuildsycoca.

If it was installed by the package manager the distributions menu 
might have failed.
