Well, the idea behind the freedesktop.org standard locations is to be 
independent of the running desktop.
Distributors have additonally used their own mechanism to ensure packages 
installed by theit package managers appear in the menus (when installing the 
acroread package on Debian, a menu entry appears in KMenu->Grafics->Viewers)

It seems this method failed in your case.

As a workaround you can create the entry for one user and then copy the 
created .desktop file into the appropriate global directory (somewhere in 
/usr/share/applications for KDE>= 3.2 and somewhere in 
KDEINSTALLDIR/share/applnk for earlier KDE versions)
