I'm going to add what Patrick said a bit.

First of all, if you follow the above suggestion, yet choose ONLY the
"Standard KDE menu", this will add ALL the menu items to "Start Applications"
that are NOT hidden in KMenu. The other 3 items add ONLY to the panel.

Then right click on the "Start Applications" icon on the panel and open Menu

In KMenu Editor, go to the menu item at the top of the open window named
"Settings" (not the Settings in the list of menu items). Click on "Show
Hidden Items".

It's as simple as that. Now ALL of the contents of KMenu will show in "Start

Keep in mind that this is a per user fix.

If you need further help, or if this isn't working for you, let me know. I've
been working with this extensively over the last week. I wanted to eliminate
potential 'problem' areas from the menu for my wife and son. I customized
their menus to quickly show them what they need to see and use, games and
music for my son, and word processing and internet for my wife. Obviously if
they dig further they can change it back, but it works for now.
