User KDE menu

User KDE menu

Hi all,

I've read a lot about KDE menus but I can figure how to preserve my
personalized user KDE menu.

If I modified KDE menus with KMenuEdit (forget about MenuDrake), everything
is fine. But if I need to reboot, I lost my user modifications everytime,
because KDE make a backup of user KDE menus in my .kde/share/applnk
directory and erase all my settings.

I've try to remove permissions to my user applnk directory for avoid
writing. No more chance :(

Anyone have a solution?

What happens is that when I logon as another user, my application
entry is not there. When adding menu entries to my K menu editor, how
do I create a global menu entry that can be visible by all my machine
users, not just me?

Thank you in advance,
