Adding an item to the KDE desktop right-click menu

I recently switched from Fedora to Slackware. I have most things set up the way I want, with one small but annoying exception... In Fedora, "Konsole" appeared in the right-click desktop menu -- that is, the menu that pops up when you right-click on an empty area of the desktop. This is not present in Slackware.

Is there a way to add this, and of so, how is it done? I tried "Menu Editor" but it seems to affect only the main menu.

Thanks -- I only searched this forum.

It brings up an additional question... how do I get some of the items from the standard desktop menu, such as "Configure desktop," "Log out..." and the like, into my custom menu? These items do not appear in the list on the menu editor, and there's no option to check the default menu's contents to see how it's configured.
